ARCHES and SPENS projects Final Seminar
The final seminar of the ARCHES and SPENS projects took place in Ljubljana on 27 – 28 August 2009. The two projects, which mainly focused on the road and bridge infrastructure needs of NMS and Candidate Countries of the EU, have now officially ended (31 August 2009). The seminar itself was a huge success attracting 120 people from across Europe and one representative of SHRP 2 USA. The audience, through the presentations, were provided with the objectives, results and achievements of the projects.
Apart from the presentations of project results, a general session on implementation of results was held. The speakers (Steve Phillips – FEHRL, Neil Hawks – SHRP 2, Ales Znidaric – ZAG and Bill Bird – EC) all laid emphasis on the important role implementation and dissemination play in making a project a success. The consensus reached was that, much needs to be done to make sure both projects are effectively disseminated to end users across Europe.
Technical excursions were also organized to test sites where implementation of project results had already taken place.
The presentations and photographs will be available soon on the projects websites – arches.fehrl.org and spens.fehrl.org. See also the EC coverage
