FIA Mobility Grants
FIA's Mobility Grants are accessible to all FIA Member Clubs under the Road Safety Grant Programme.
Available to FIA members only, the FIA Road Safety Grant Programme, established in 2012 with an endowment from the FIA Foundation. It funds Club projects for promotion and progress in road safety around the world.
FIA Road Safety Grant Programme
Founded in 2012, the FIA Road Safety Grant Programme has awarded to date over 4 000 000 € in support of the road safety projects all over the world. Over 220 innovative road safety initiatives have been started in over 70 countries: awareness campaigns, educational programmes and training, vulnerable road users' protection, conferences, events and workshops, road infrastructure safety information and vehicle inspection programmes.
In May 2011 the United Nations launched the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety. The project's goal is to save five million lives and reduce road-related injuries by 50 million worldwide over the next 10 years. To support this landmark project, the FIA created the Action for Road Safety Programme to support the UN programme through its global network of motoring and touring clubs and its involvement with motor sports. The FIA Foundation welcomed this initiative and agreed to fund the FIA Strategic Road Safety Programme with an endowment of 1 million EUR per annum.
The programme is composed of three different tracks of development: small, medium and large projects.
The S-projects track covers events and initiatives in support of FIA Action for Road Safety Campaign and its Golden Rules, such as press events in support of Pedestrian Safety, Helmet Initiatives, Bicycle safety and similar proposals. This track disposes of 100 000 € yearly and Clubs can apply for a maximum ceiling of 5 000 € per campaign.
M-projects are one-year road safety initiatives supporting the UN Decade of Action in the fields of road safety management, safer roads & mobility, safer vehicles, safer road users and post-crash care. Clubs are encouraged to apply for up 30 000 € per project. This track disposes of 500 000 € yearly.
L-projects are lighthouse, long-term, innovative road safety actions unfolding their activities in one of the five Decade of Action pillars.
The Policy Commission is the active promoter of initiatives for this track and provides guidance to the Secretariat by selecting priority areas and giving guidance to the management of the project.
For the development of these ground-breaking activities the FIA will dedicate 300 000 € yearly.
To date two initiatives will be developed under the L-track:
- Child Safety in cars: the development of a toolkit to improve the situation of child safety in cars, by giving methodological guidance to different countries based on a scale system.
- Road Safety Indicators: run in cooperation with International Transport Federation (ITF), this project aims at developing universal road safety indicators contributing to a better understanding of road safety and comparing road traffic safety policies.
