ECTP has signed two Memorandum of Understanding with FEHRL and ENCORD

ECTP is pleased to announce the signature of two Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), respectively with FEHRL and ENCORD, during the ECTP Conference that took place on 13-14 November 2018 in Brussels. 

FEHRL, Forum of Europe's National Road Research Centres, founded in 1989, is the main representative platform of academia in the field of road infrastructure. FEHRL’s objective consists in providing scientific input to Europe and national government policy on highway engineering and road transport matters and to increase innovation in this sector. FEHRL and ECTP – and in particular its Infrastructure & Mobility Committee - share similar aims and objectives regarding the effort to increase innovation in European road construction and to improve energy efficiency of highway engineering and operations, and Transport infrastructures at a large. This MoU underlines both the need and the will to cooperate more intensively between academia and industry, in order to build a common approach for the future transport infrastructures in Europe.

ENCORD, European Network of Construction Companies for Research and Development, founded in 1989, is the European forum for industry-led research, development and innovation in the construction sector. ENCORD’s members are leading European contractors and suppliers of construction material. The companies are strongly devoted to R&D for increased competitiveness and growth. Thus, ENCORD and ECTP share similar aims regarding the effort to increase innovation in European construction industries through a better quality, comfort and efficiency of buildings, transport infrastructures and the whole built environment. This MoU formalises the basis for an enhanced future cooperation between the two organisations. ECTP and ENCORD will together promote innovation, share knowledge and raise the needs of RD&I in buildings, networks and transport infrastructures towards key European stakeholders. 

ECTP is looking forward to a fruitful cooperation with ENCORD and FEHRL.
