Message from the Chairman

Dear friends, International collaboration and knowledge exchange are a must – all the more for a branch and a research center of a country as small as Belgium – to be able to provide input to foreign research results and to export our knowledge and our experience worldwide. That is the only way for us to stay at the cutting edge of technology in the road sector. The Belgian road branch has been cooperating with the World Road Association PIARC for many years.

A Belgian President of PIARC

We have heard the good news that our chairman was appointed President of the World Road Association (PIARC) during the PIARC Council in Cape Town (South Africa) on Thursday 22nd September 2016. In the next few weeks, and more particularly during the board meeting and general assembly on 4th October, Claude will tell us more about the implications of this presidency for Belgium. publication : 23.09.2016
