      The ShLOW! (Show me How Slow) project, led by the European Transport Safety
      Council (ETSC), still has openings for projects by UK-based students.
      Through participation in ShLOW!, students have a chance to win a prize to be
      awarded in 2010 on the basis of their project and also the chance to obtain
      a safety-related internship with ETSC, a campaigning organisation in
      Brussels.

      ShLOW! focuses on the work of committed young students who will be
      encouraged to run a local campaign or concrete action to reduce speeding in
      road transport with the support of ETSC and its partners. The first stage
      for the students is participation in a "Camp" in Brussels, which provides a
      one-week training on speed management.

      Using the knowledge acquired during the Camp, the students will, on their
      return home, carry out an individual project on Speed Management at the
      local level. During their projects, the students will receive the support of
      consortium partners. At the end of ShLOW!, the most successful student will
      be invited to Brussels to receive an award.

      All types of student are eligible - undergraduate, masters and PhD. Projects
      should relate to a particular initiative or campaign on speed management,
      which could be on a campus or local level. Small-scale projects are not a
      problem - indeed they are desirable in that they are more likely to have
      achievable impacts. SHLOW! projects can also relate to some activity that is
      already taking place.

      Further information about ShLOW! can be found on the project website,
      http://www.shlow.eu/. The deadline for the finalisation of proposals for
      projects is the end of June. Any interested students from the UK should get
      in touch with me at
