SUP&R ITN final symposium was presented in January 2017 all JTR 2017, organised in Nantes from IFSTTAR
The leaders of the scientific Work Packages (WP1, WP2, WP3) presented the work of the programme together with all the fellows. Furthermore the Ateleir 2, as well as the main hall, hosted all the posters of the fellows and each of them was engaged in several discussion with transport infrastructure stakeholders. This was an important milestone for the SUP&R ITN project and all the parties involved. It was also the last group dissemination event with all the fellows
Training Week focused on “Road and Railways European Research” from Monday 23rd to Friday 27th of January (Open to external participants)
SUP&R ITN Management Meeting (Supervisory Board) – Tuesday 24th at 10.30 AM in IFSTTAR-Nantes.

SUP&R ITN project will be presented with quick presentations of each fellows and a dedicated poster sessions at the 8th International RILEM SIB Symposium in Ancona, Italy from 6-9 October 2015 Hosted by Università Politecnica delle Marche (UNIVPM)
under the auspices of the Italian Society of Transportation Infrastructures (SIIV)
You are invited to a main event of the SUP&R ITN project, in Palermo in the period going from the 16th – 23rd September 2015.Dear All,
The summer school is an advanced formation course for civil engineers, researchers, academics with an interest in sustainable engineering and focused on transport infrastructures. This event will provide fellows of the SUP&R ITN and a limited number of external participants, with a unique forum to interact with colleagues from all over the world and learn the next generation of approaches and tools used to account for assessing the sustainability of certain design strategies. With this background, with the provided tools and the hands-on sessions, the participants will gain knowledge and experience in the design of road pavements and railways tracks with a life-cycle thinking approach and using best practices based on sustainability principles.
This event will bring together world class academics, researchers, engineers and specialists on sustainability assessment of transport infrastructure, sustainable design and management of road pavements and railway tracks. Here a short description of some of the confirmed invited speakers/trainers:
Gerardo W. Flintsch – VirginiaTech, USA Director of the Center for Sustainable Transportation Infrastructure at the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute and a professor of civil and environmental engineering at Virginia Tech for his work in pavement engineering and infrastructure management.
David Castlo – Network Rail, UK Principal Engineer and Member of the Track & Civils team within Asset management Technical Services. David is one the main developer of the Life Cycle Assessment Tool (LCAT) FP7 EU project MAINLINE
Andrew Dawson – University of Nottingham, UK Associate Professor engaged in many research studies in pavement foundations, materials recycling and pavement design, performance and maintenance. He is responsible for undergraduate teaching in geomechanics, including courses on geo-environmental engineering and geology.
Steve Muench – University of Washington/GreenRoads, USA Associate Professor at the University of Washington, Steve has research interests in the transportation infrastructure realm with special emphasis on sustainability. Current sustainability efforts include Greenroads Foundation, a sustainability rating system for roadway design and construction. Other interests include heavy civil construction, pavements and online training.
Tony Parry – University of Nottingham, UK Associate Professor in the Nottingham Transportation Engineering Centre where his research interests include Life Cycle Assessment of construction materials and transport infrastructure, sustainable construction assessment methods and use of alternative materials in road construction.
