Cyprus University of Technology (CUT) is a newly established University (2003), public and independent, aspiring to develop itself into a pioneering University, able to offer high education and academic research, mainly in the fields of science and technology. It has five faculties (Faculty of Applied Arts and Communications, Faculty of Economics and Management, Faculty of Engineering and Technology, Faculty of Geotechnical Sciences and Environmental Management, Faculty of Health Sciences). In addition CUT offers a Master in Environmental Health and doctoral studies on its main fields.
Cyprus University of Technology (CUT) action will start on the basis of accidents' statistics as presented by Police, Governmental Services and European studies.
A detailed accidents analysis, focusing on the category of young persons' casualty (parameters of location, vehicle etc. to be taken into account) will take place in the form of round-table discussions, youth forum, lectures, video conference and presentations.
A questionnaire completed by a sample of students and other young people will give an additional corpus and enlighten data. Supplementary measures will be taken during all phases: informing campaign through publications and other media on reasons of accidentology and drivers behaviour involved in accidents.
Main priority is to involve young people aged 18-25 to contribute interactively in this effort. The final product of this effort will be an updated and detailed report on accidentology and young people and suggestions on further or new measures to be taken for the reduction.
