Road Safety Advocacy in Brussels.

The European Union Road Federation (ERF) is a non-profit association which coordinates the views of Europe’s road infrastructure sector and acts as a platform for research and dialogue on mobility issues between stakeholders and institutional players.

In order to facilitate the contribution of the road sector towards the EU Institutions and member states, the ERF was established in Brussels in 1998 with the following mission:

  • Defend the interests of the European road infrastructure community towards the EU Institutions and other stakeholders
  • Represent a cross-section of industry partners, road and users associations active in the construction, equipment, maintenance and operation of Europe’s road network
  • Initiate and support studies, campaigns and publications aimed at increasing awareness on the importance of roads for all citizens
  • Contribute to European research initiatives with a view to enhancing the overall efficiency, sustainability and safety of the road transport system
  • Give the road infrastructure community a consistent and united voice in all road transport areas by promoting and coordinating Programmes & Working Groups

SWARCO's international sales manager for Road Marking Systems, Harald Mosböck, is a member of the ERF Executive Committee.
