Safety 2016 World Conference - 12th World Conference on Injury Prevention and Safety Promotion

18 September 2016 to 21 September 2016

The Safety 2016 ─ the 12th World Conference on Injury Prevention and Safety Promotion will be held in Tampere, Finland, on 18−21 September 2016.

From research to implementation

Injuries, both violence and unintentional injuries, are a major burden on public health worldwide. While experts in injury prevention and safety promotion recognize the need for action, the state-of-the-art knowledge and practice from these fields are not consistently applied to policies and programmes in the field. The main theme for the Safety 2016, “From research to implementation”, seeks to provoke new ideas and experiences to address this gap.

Abstract submission is still open

Abstract submission for the Safety 2016 is open from 1 May to 1 November 2015 (midnight, EET).
