PIARC Technical Committees

PIARC Technical Committees unite experts from numerous areas including road safety and design, network operations and maintenance, finance and governance.

Experts are nominated by member countries to work on issues identified under the Associations' Strategic Plan, a key'directions' document endorsed by member countries.

Technical Committees allow participants to access global information and expertise, along with professional development and networking opportunities.

The Strategic Plan for 2016-2019 sets the organization structure of the Technical Committees according to five Strategic Themes: 

Technical Committees are tasked with producing reports on best practice and recommendations in their respective fields thereby assisting decision makers, road engineers and research engineers. They play an active role in the preparation of the World Road Congresses.
