Abstract: For academic year 2018-2019, the School for Transportation Sciences professor George Yannis was nominated for the Francqui Chair. The central topic for the lectures is "Road safety in an international and digital era". As a professor of road safety and management at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA, Greece), he is in charge of the Transportation Planning and Engineering Department. He has an impressive academic curriculum (490 scientific articles, including 147 in international journals) and participates actively in numerous (inter) national research projects and scientific committees in the field of mobility and traffic safety (EC, UN / ECE, OECD, WHO, World Bank, CEDR , ERF, ETSC). He is also a member of the editorial board of 5 international scientific journals. Professor Yannis' research is very international with many collaborations in various European countries and beyond. Prof. dr. Yannis is a fascinating speaker and very active in science popularization. For example, he has his own science blog (www.georgeyannis.com) in which he shares visions and opinions on current mobility issues. Finally, he manages a website (www.nrso.ntua.gr) on which the latest new studies, project results, new conferences and road safety statistics in Europe are communicated.
