Prof. dr. Tom BRIJS
IMOB (Hasselt University, Belgium) professors Geert Wets and Tom Brijs are both ranked in the top 15 of the most productive and influential authors worldwide in the field of road safety of the past 50 years. This ranking is based on an in-depth analysis conducted by the top magazine in road safety "Accident Analysis and Prevention". Prof. Dr Geert Wets was ranked at place 8, Prof. Dr Tom Brijs at place 13.
This is an excellent ranking, considered that IMOB (Transportation Research Institute) is only 15 years old. IMOB’s footprint in the domain might be quite recent, but it is very present.
This ranking is highly valuable as it shows that you do not have to belong to large institutions to be influential as a researcher in this global world. The combination of a strong internal strategy and complementarity can score high on an international level.
