Aachen Symposium on Road Infrastructure


This year, the symposium has a focus on environmental sustainability.


The Aachener Fachsymposium Straßenwesen (Aachen Symposium on Road Infrastructure) is scheduled to take place on Thursday, June 9, 2022. The event has been jointly organized by the RWTH Institute of Highway Engineering and the SETAC e.V. research association. The symposium has a focus on environmental sustainability and will take placec as a hybrid event with both face-to-face and online components.

In road infrastructure research, the topics of sustainability and climate protection have not been given sufficient attention so far. The three-pillar model of sustainability assessment could contribute to closing this gap, as it takes ecological, economic, and social aspects into account and considers technical-functional aspects over the entire life cycle. What is needed is a basic understanding of the subject and the processes involved. The Aachen Symposium on Road Engineering seeks to provide an overview of this important topic.
