Completed projects

International projects

This project compared several methodological approaches concerning the use phase and the inclusion of pavement recycling in a life cycle perspective.

  • CalFrance (UC Berkeley, California, USA) (2010-2012) Monitoring and Improving Roadway surface conditions for safe driving environment and sustainable infrastructure

This project enabled an exchange of practices on road monitoring and evaluation methods.

European projects

  • ROSE (2016-2018) ROads Saving Energy

Objective : a durable asphalt pavement with at least 6.5% reduction of passenger-car energy consumption
leader : Roskilde University. Ease brought its expertise :
   on the experimental part: measurement of rolling resistance and texture measurement.
   on the theoretical part: influence of the geometry of the road on consumption.

  • FOX (2015-2017) Forever Open infrastructure across all transport modes

FOX H2020 is a project funded theme MG - 81b 2014 "Smarter design, building and maintenance." It aims to define a roadmap in terms of R & D (research and development) to develop multimodal transport high efficiency

  •  SUPER ITN (2013-2016) Sustainable Pavement & Railway Initial Training Network

This Marie Curie project aims to develop a multi-criteria evaluation tool for transport infrastructures (road/rail). The work resulted in the establishment of a multi-criteria evaluation methodology (selection of indicators, methods of aggregation of indicators) that makes it possible to compare different technical solutions with one another based on sustainability criteria and environmental, safety, noise and cost impacts. The project addresses all pillars of sustainable development (technical, economic, environmental and social) and provides the assessment tool associated with the methodology.

National projects

The Gedev project considers the operational and legal feasibility of green verges’ (GV) management by competent local actors involved in the management of (sem natural environments. For land transport infrastructure (LTIs) managers, using the skills of local stakeholders in natural environment management may be a solution to meet their need to implement biodiversity-friendly practices in GVs (conservation, connectivity). However, such initiatives remain limited and the possibilities for replication in other contexts are unclear.

  • CAPTATUS (2016-2018)

This project aims to physically characterize the particles from exhaust (particle size, surface, number, chemical composition, ...) in various situations of use of vehicles.
