February 03, 2022  Anniversary: 20th SafetyWeek 

In 2022, SafetyWeek will take place for the 20th time. SafetyWeek has been held annually (and without interruption!) since 2003. Initially in Aschaffenburg, since 2018 in Würzburg, SafetyWeek offers a comprehensive lecture program and an accompanying trade exhibition. For all its continuity, however, SafetyWeek has constantly evolved. Whereas in the beginning the focus was entirely on crash safety, today the program covers all aspects of vehicle safety, including accident prevention. Numerous top-class speakers have already confirmed their attendance at the anniversary event. Among them is Director and Professor Andre Seeck (BASt - Federal Highway Research Institute), who was already a speaker at the first SafetyWeek in 2003.

January 13, 2022 SafetyWeek 2022 back in May in Würzburg and online 

In 2022, SafetyWeek will return to its traditional date in May. It will take place from May 17-19, 2022 at the VCC in Würzburg and, of course, again online via live stream. The concept of the SafetyTesting sub-event is new. As the SafetyTesting Challenge, it will focus even more on the current challenges
in test operations.
