Knowledge Transfer and Dissemination Flyers

CERTAINWithin work package 4 of the CERTAIN project, the main objective was to foster and organise clustering and knowledge sharing, support cohesion and promote excellence in Central and Eastern European Countries. The FEHRLopedia was developed to support this objective by providing a common place for dissemination and exploitation of results of clustered projects in all languages. For more information on how to use the FEHRLopedia, please see the newly  developed "FEHRLopedia Manual". In line with knowledge transfer and dissemination, a separate flyer on FEHRL’s practices, provides an overview of the different possibilities FEHRL has available in “Knowledge Dissemination and Trainings”.

Longer Heavy Vehicles - LHV Project

FEHRLA consortium including FEHRL has been awarded a contract by the EC’s DG Transport to assess the likely effects if a number of different amendments to EC regulations on truck masses and dimensions were to be permitted.  This consortium led by the UK’s Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) brings together a number of key national experts including FEHRL members TRL (UK), LCPC (France), BASt (Germany), VTI (Sweden) and RWS DVS (Netherlands). Together with our partners (NEA, NL and Setra, France), one of the project objectives will be to review the implications if longer and/or heavier trucks were to be permitted in the different member states of Europe.
