Categories: Project update

The LIAISON second General Assembly in Dublin has been a pivotal moment in its mission to transform transport infrastructure.

 

Last week, the LIAISON project held its second General Assembly in Dublin, marking a pivotal moment in its journey towards a more sustainable transport infrastructure. Gathering experts from across Europe, the assembly provided a platform for reviewing progress, sharing insights, and strategizing the next steps for the project’s ambitious goals.

LIAISON, a European Union-funded initiative, aims to deliver sustainable, high-performance solutions to reduce the carbon footprint of road and rails construction, operation and maintenance. To decarbonize transport infrastructures, LIAISON, now entering its second year, focuses on the development and deployment of innovative materials like bioasphalts and concrete slabs geopolymer-based, smart solution for optimising lighting and tunnel fans in a digital asset management environment, new ballast solutions, damage detection on pavements or energy-harvesting solutions with piezoelectric materials.

During the meeting, the project coordinator, David Garcia-Sanchez, underscored the critical nature of this phase, emphasizing the urgency and importance of demonstrating tangible outcomes:LIAISON is entering its second year, a very crucial phase. The project is presenting solutions that are very close to market, and from what emerged during the meeting, all partners are working extremely hard to meet our targets on time”.

Garcia-Sanchez further addressed “we have already achieved some initial results, and more will follow in the coming months. We have to make an extra effort to transfer to road and railway sector all these improvements and validate all of them according to the general governance framework. The consortium is performing exceptionally well, and there is significant interest in our outcomes from the industry, as demonstrated by the wide participation in the first meeting of the Stakeholder Reference Group lead by Jesus Rodriguez, our Chairman”.
