Featuring representatives from each region, plus professionals from national organisations including the DfT and the third sector, this is the national coordinating group for activities under the umbrella of the Analysts Network. This includes planning the national conference and identifying new topics for discussion.
A forum for collaboration
Launched in 2016 and revised in 2019, the Analysts Network consists of two main elements to promote collaboration and discussion between professionals who used road safety data in their work.
The first is a series of regional meetings, either in person or online, which are organised by the local Champion and which meet on a regular basis. These meetings allow peers to discuss relevant matter and provide feedback to the national forum. It also allows national matter to be cascaded down, perhaps even reflecting work from other regions.
The second element is a private, online forum where people from different regions, professions and organisations can interact, solve problems, and showcase new work. This already has over 100 registered users and as use grows, it is expected this community will become an essential tool for those working in the sector.
