Ever since it was established, BRRC has been assigned to promote technological progress in road construction through research and development. Over the years, the Centre has built a solid practice in serving professionals through technical and documentary assistance.
The right choice of structure and constituent layers is a primary concern to designers in both the private (engineering consultants, architects) and the public sector (technical departments of municipalities, provinces and regions) who have to make designs for new roads or for maintenance, renovation and adaptation works to existing infrastructure.
Knowledge transfer is a core task of the Belgian Road Research Centre. BRRC shares its knowledge with road professionals by issuing publications (codes of good practice, syntheses, research reports, methods of measurement, leaflets, the quarterly journal Bulletin CRR / OCW Mededelingen with appended Dossiers, and activity reports), authoring or co-authoring publications ordered by and/or in cooperation with third parties and, finally, making contributions (articles and papers) to scientific literature, congresses and workshops.
