On September 26, 2018 at Belarusian National Technical University National Erasmus+ Office in Belarus conducted monitoring of the project "544181-TEMPUS-1-2013-1-IT-TEMPUS-JPCR Belarusian Road Safety Network", which was implemented during the period 01.12.2013 - 31.08.2017. The project participants from Belarusian State University of Transport (BelSUT), Belarusian State Economic University (BSEU), Belarusian National Technical University (BNTU) and Brest State Technical University (BrSTU) took part in this event. The goal of the monitoring is to assess the actual sustainability and impact of the project at all levels (individual, institutional, local and national) and to identify best practices in terms of project sustainability, impact and exploitation of results.

Within the framework of the project two new master degree programmes have been introduced in Belarus: "Road safety" — at BelSUT, BNTU and BrSTU; “Road safety and audit” — at BSEU. To support the educational process, 11 manuals have been developed and published. The topic of road safety was included in the programmes to train specialists at the first cycle of higher education in a number of specialties of engineering profile.

They have equipped laboratories with computers, multimedia and software for conducting classes on road safety at BelSUT, BSEU, BNTU and BrSTU at the expense of the grant. Laboratories are actively used in the educational process by undergraduates and master students.

Within the framework of the project teachers from BelSUT, BSEU, BNTU and BrSTU studied at partner universities in Greece, Italy and United Kingdom. The acquired experience and knowledge were applied to the development of manuals and other materials for the provision of educational process for the new master programmes, as well as the updated disciplines of the first cycle. In addition, Belarusian participants of the project in cooperation with European partners prepared and published 6 monographs on road safety.

The project participants contributed to the improvement of providing road safety in Belarus. Thus, they developed the "Concept of road safety in Minsk"; "The program to improve road safety in the Gomel region until 2020"; 6 manuals for practical use by the traffic police and national Internet resource "Road Safety Observatory (http://www.bntu.by/atf-obserwatory.html).
