18 years on the road …

On February 28, no less than 200 persons gathered to salute the long and rich career of Claude Van Rooten, who has led the Belgian Road Research Centre (BRRC) for the past eighteen years.

During a lively and musical academic session, various speakers who crossed his path during his career highlighted the many facets of Claude Van Rooten.

He has been active in the world of construction since 1976 and at the BRRC since 2000. In 2006, he also started transmitting his knowledge and experience as a lecturer at the ULB. He will now continue to represent the Belgian colours as President of the World Road Association PIARC, a position he has held since 2017.

The BRRC thanks him for everything he has done for the road sector during all these years and wishes him to continue to find new challenges, as he has always done.
