The Forum is hosted by the Transport Committee Vice-Chairman, Dominique Riquet (ALDE) and the European Parliament Members Inés Ayalá-Sender (S&D) and Wim van de Camp (EPP). This year’s forum will comprise of a full day workshop on the CEN-CENELEC premises, followed by a Debate Session in the European Parliament.
The full-day workshop on Monday 2nd of February will present and cover the outcomes of the EU co-financed project A European Scanning Tour for Motorcycle Safety, including the state of the art of motorcycle safety knowledge, access to powered two wheelers, traffic and road environment, and the means to convey safety messages to the riding community, in order to set up a result-based PTW safety strategy.

With the outcomes of the RIDERSCAN project and the publication of the OECD/ITF report on motorcycling safety (to be released by the end of 2014), we believe that the 2015 European Motorcyclists’ Forum (EMF 2015) is an excellent opportunity for all parties to discuss concrete actions to improve PTW safety in Europe.
