Prof. Dr Geert Wets and Prof. Dr Tom Brijs (IMOB – Uhasselt) are top 15 most productive and influential authors in the field of road safety
IMOB (Hasselt University, Belgium) professors Geert Wets and Tom Brijs are both in the top 15 of the most productive and influential authors worldwide in the field of road safety of the past 50 years. This ranking is based on an in-depth analysis conducted by the top magazine in road safety "Accident Analysis and Prevention". Prof. Dr Geert Wets was ranked in the top 10.
This is an excellent ranking, considered that IMOB (Transportation Research Institute) is only 15 years old. IMOB’s footprint in the domain might be quite recent, but it is very present. (See table 6 in the attached paper)
This ranking is highly valuable as it shows that you do not have to belong to large institutions to be influential as a researcher in this global world. With an internal strategy focused on spearheads and internal complementarity, you can indeed score on an international level.
