Meet the Chairs of the 22 Technical Committees and Task Forces for the 2020 - 2023 Work Cycle

2nd November 2020

During the kick-off meetings of the new PIARC work cycle that took place in Paris from 22 January to 14 February 2020, the Chairs of the 22 Technical Committees and Task Forces presented the themes on which they will work for the 2020 - 2023 cycle.

PIARC's Technical Committees bring together experts from many fields, including road safety and design, network operation and maintenance, finance and governance. They provide their members with access to information and know-how at the international level, as well as opportunities to develop their professional experience and expand their network. They are in particular responsible for drawing up position papers and recommendations in their respective fields that will help decision-makers, design and works engineers and technicians. These 22 Technical Committees and Task Forces are structured into four strategic themes which, for the 2020 - 2023 work cycle, concern the Road Administration, Mobility, Safety and Sustainability and Resilient Infrastructures, in addition to two cross-cutting Committees: the Terminology Committee and the Road Statistics Committee.

Kick-off meetings of the new Strategic Plan

From 22 January to 14 February 2020, PIARC launched its new Strategic Plan by organising kick-off meetings in Paris for all of its 22 Technical Committees and Task Forces. Around 1,000 experts from around 50 countries attended these meetings to discuss how to organise their work for the next four-year cycle. On this occasion, we asked the chairpersons of each committee to present the themes and actions planned for the 2020 - 2023 cycle.
