Traffic research and driver education in Vietnam

In collaboration with Professor Bernd Meier of the University of Potsdam, the FIZ-MTS GmbH presented current trends in German traffic research and German novice driver education to a delegation led by Lê ĐìnhThọ, the vice transport minister of the Socialist Republic of Vietnam. The programme encompassed, for instance, meetings at the „Rotes Rathaus” (the famous city hall in Berlin), at the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure and at the Brandenburg Ministry for Infrastructure and Planning. Furthermore, the Vietnamese delegation visited the „Alter Dorfkrug” in Staffelde, where the FIZ-MTS GmbH is located. The delegation attended comprehensive talks by Prof. Dr. Dietmar Sturzbecher and CEO of FIZ-MTS GmbH Bianca Bredow about the variety of driver education systems in Europe and discussed desirable standards for the novice driver education system.
In July 2017, an invitation by Assoc. Prof. Dr. Dao Van Dong, the chancellor of the University of Transport Technology (UTT) in Hanoi/Vietnam was accepted. During this visit, the FIZ-MTS GmbH met Vietnamese representatives of business, profession (head of Education- and Technical inspection Associations) and administration (Ministry of Transport in Hanoi) and discussed concepts and ideas for the Vietnamese novice driver education system. Furthermore, the delegation visited for instance a test track, attended a practical driving test and organized a workshop about the novice driver education system and road traffic safety in Vietnam.

As a result of the scientific discourse, the FIZ-MTS GmbH and the University of Transport Technology concluded a Memorandum of Understanding which laid the foundation for a fruitful future collaboration.

New: Carriage rides with the postal charabanc

Besides traditional rides with our postal horse carriage, we are offering also rides in our postal charabanc. Since the charabanc provides seating for around 18 guests, it is ideal for larger groups, families, or office outings. Additionally, it is accessible for people with impairments or disabilities and also has capacity for wheelchairs.

Through the employment of innovation assistants, who are financed by the Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs, Health, Women and Family using funds from the European Social Fund and the federated state Brandenburg, diverse projects are carried out presently. The European Social Fund is the European Union’s main instrument for supporting employment. The objective of this support is to facilitate taking up employment of highly qualified young professionals in Brandenburg and to encourage business innovation and growth by means of knowledge transfer.
