Belgian Road Research Centre (BE)
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. BRRCs expertise in Mobility covers “transport economics and mobility policy”, “goods transport” and “travelers transport and soft modes”. Urban freight transport is a main topic within the goods transport work area.
On its 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.
