TRL expert appointed as executive director of FEHRL

The director of infrastructure at the UK’s Transport Research Laboratory (TRL), Bob Collis, has been appointed an executive director of FEHRL (Forum of European National Highway Research Laboratories), which is based in Brussels, Belgium. The international association comprises 30 national research and technical institutes from across Europe, with links to several non-European countries. FEHRL’s mission is to promote and facilitate collaboration on road research and provide high quality information and advice on technologies and policies related to roads.

In his new role, Collis will be responsible for developing the Forever Open Road roadmap for research and development that forms the core to FEHRL’s Fifth Strategic Road Research Program. The visionary concept originated at the TRL, and is aimed at developing the next generation of roads, enabling them to be adaptable, automated and climate change resilient; a concept that could be applied to existing and new roads, regardless of geographical location or type.

Collis has worked in the civil engineering industry for over 35 years; with the last 15 years spent at TRL. He currently chairs the HA/QPA/MPA collaborative research program for asphalt roads and is also a member of the World Road Association’s (WRA) UK executive committee. He is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (FCILT) and Member of the Institution of Highways and Transportation (MIHT).
