about RRAF

ERA-NET ROAD II is a collaborative project of European National Road Administrations (NRA) funded under the European Framework Programme (FP7) to develop transnational cooperation for road research.

The Road Research Access Facility (RRAF) is a web-based tool developed by ERA-NET ROAD II to assist NRAs and the road community in finding solutions to their research problems. Its development is phased over the duration of the ERA-NET ROAD II project, with the objective of being fully operational by October 2010. more...

aim and mission

Improving knowledge for a better management of the European strategic road networks is essential for ensuring the sector is contributing effectively to play its key role in Europe. In order to improve the efficiency of research activities contributing to the creation of knowledge, the National Road Administrations (NRAs) in charge of the road networks have developed a cooperating approach based on the identification of existing solutions, or the design of collaborative projects if solutions are not yet available.

The Road Research Access Facility (RRAF) is designed to assist in this process, by providing better insight into the planned, ongoing and finished road research activities at regional, national and European level of other road administrations and knowledge centres. more...
