The Forum of European National Highway Research Laboratories (FEHRL), based in Brussels, comprises 30 national research and technical institutes from across Europe, with links to non-European countries.
Mr Collis is responsible for developing the Forever Open Road roadmap for research and development that forms the core to FEHRL’s fifth strategic road research programme. This concept started life at TRL and is aimed at developing the next generation of roads, enabling them to be adaptable, automated and resilient to climate change.
He has worked for TRL for 15 years and chairs the HA/QPA/MPA collaborative research programme for asphalt roads. He is also a member of the World Road Association’s UK executive committee, a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (FCILT) and a member of the Institution of Highways and Transportation (MIHT).
