Clemson University’s Institute for Global Road Safety and Security (IGRSS) was approved in 2002 as a new program for Clemson University by the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education and is a “niche” area of Clemson University’s Automotive and Transportation Technology emphasis area. This interdisciplinary community of CU-IGRSS researchers produces knowledge that leads to new and more effective ways of improving the safety of the automotive and transportation environment by developing evidence-based countermeasures and products. The institute's unique structure addresses complex and interconnected challenges of the future of transportation safety where it is no longer possible for these issues to be solved in a single discipline or profession.
