Assistance to the profession

The assistance given by Belgian Road Research Centre (BRRC) to professionals takes the forms of technical assistance, technological consulting and documentary assistance.

To professionals often seeking quick and effective solutions to specific problems, we offer technical assistance in all the areas of activity of the Centre.

In addition, for specific topical subjects we set up various technological consulting (TC) units at the service of all Belgian enterprises – especially SMEs -, with support from the Regions.

Through these contacts the technological consultants can stimulate the use of innovative materials and techniques and better assess the needs for new, more thorough or more targeted research in the sector.

Finally, our documentation branch gives documentary assistance by consulting national and international databases and granting access to our library. This library offers a tremendous collection of specialized literature, which is unique in Belgium. In addition to covering all the technical aspects of road construction it contains documents on topics such as road safety, mobility, traffic signing and environmental issues, as well as publications of a socioeconomic nature such as statistics, normative documents, etc.
