The Federal Highway Research Institute (BASt) is the practice-oriented, technical-scientific research institute of the German Government in the field of road engineering. It is dedicated to a wide range of tasks, which result from the relationships between roads, humans and the environment.
Its mission is the improvement of safety, environmental compatibility, efficiency and performance relating to roads.
The BASt provides the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) with scientifically valid aids as decision support in technical and transport policy issues. The tasks range from planning, coordination and performance of multi-annual research projects through to the fast response to questions in supporting the current work of the BMVI. It is a leading member of the network of national and European cutting-edge research institutes in the field of road engineering and is significantly involved on a worldwide basis in drawing up regulations and standards.
The tasks of the BASt also include consultancy, attestation and inspection and certification activities as well as functioning as the driving licence procedure assessment centre.
It was established in 1951 and has been based in Bergisch Gladbach since 1983. Since 1970, the BASt has been the central point for road traffic accident research in German. Read More...

The Belgian Road Research Centre (BRRC) is a privately operated public utility research institute created in 1952 by application of a decree-law of 1947 aimed at promoting research in industry.

In its over sixty years of existence, it has built a solid reputation at both the national and international levels as an impartial trend-setting centre for research in the areas of road design, construction and maintenance. Moreover, it has recently extended its expertise to the fields of road safety, mobility, and environment-friendly road construction.

On this foundation, BRRC has developed an extensive package of services to assist road contracting firms, the competent national, regional and local authorities, manufacturers of materials and equipment, inspection, certification and standardization bodies, circles of education in all forms and at all levels, consultancy firms and designers, and control and testing laboratories.

CEDR is a platform for cooperation and promotion of improvements to the road system and its infrastructure. Members represent their respective national road authorities and provide support and advice on decisions concerning the road transport system that are taken at national or international level.
CEDR’s expert committees are tasked to provide technical and strategic advice on important topics. These include important issues such as road safety, climate change, performance indicators, energy, procurement, financing, professional development, legislation and standards, ITS etc.
CEDR also supports research activities through its own Transnational Research Programme which has funded numerous research projects. Members address the full range of road transport and road infrastructure issues and are the key players when implementing directives, standards, or recommendations. They can develop more effective technical approaches by learning from successes and failures elsewhere.
