11am Panel Debate: Keeping Older Drivers Driving, Safely for Longer
In this event we will discuss the work of the Transport stand of the Social Inclusion through the Digital Economy project, who are researching how to keep older drivers driving safely, for longer.
A panel of subject experts will discuss current issues in the context of an ageing population and the implications for older drivers.
Following the panel debate, you will have a chance to experience the driving simulator where you see the research in action and take part.
