The EU research project SafetyCube (Safety CaUsation, Benefits and Efficiency) is developing an innovative road safety Decision Support System (DSS) collecting the available evidence on a broad range of road risks and possible countermeasures. The structure underlying the DSS consists of (1) a taxonomy identifying risk factors and measures and linking them to each other, (2) a repository of studies, and (3) synopses summarizing the effects estimated in the literature for each risk factor and measure, and (4) an economic efficiency evaluation (E3-calculator). The DSS is implemented in a modern web-based tool with a highly ergonomic interface, allowing users to get a quick overview or go deeper into the results of single studies according to their own needs.
