The Split the Risk course which had been developed by the Consumer Safety Institute (the Netherlands), was adapted and translated for pilot activities in Austria. For getting first experiences and feedback on the course, four different types of pilot project days were conducted in several federal states of Austria. The pilot activities were accompanied by an evaluation.
To get an impression of the materials and the way they are used in the Austrian pilots, you can find here:
