The events we have been involved in

IFSTTAR regularly takes part in the organisation of international scientific, technical and policy events.

For example, IFSTTAR organised, with the backing of the European Commission, the 2014 edition of the Transport Research Arena (TRA), which attracted 2800 participants, with a fifty-fifty split between decision-makers and firms, and also took part in COP21 in 2015.

In 2016 IFSTTAR’s researchers were involved, in particular, in organising or chairing several international events, for example:

  • 8th Rilem International Conference on Mechanisms of Cracking and Debonding in Pavements (MCD 2016) in Nantes; Chair Dr A. Chabot
  • 21st International Transport and Air Pollution Conference (TAP 2016) in Lyon; Chair Dr S. Khardi
