EPAM 2012

The 4th EPAM, European pavement and asset management conference, in Malmö, Sweden, on 5–7 September 2012, at hotel Hilton Malmö city has been successfully accomplished. The conference was the follow up of the previous EPAM conferences in Budapest, Hungary in 2000; Berlin, Germany in 2004 and Coimbra, Portugal 2008.

The aim of the conference was to meet and discuss and get more knowledge of the challenges of road infrastructure asset management.

The effects of increasing traffic, climate change and need of safety as well as the need of well-being has to be met by even more effective road management. A holistic approach covering a lifetime view of road keeping (e.g. LCA) and preserving the assets is essential. The challenge Europe is facing is to use environmental friendly materials and technologies providing a sustainable and safe road infrastructure system.

The conference covered all aspects of the road infrastructure including assets such as pavements, engineering structures and road equipment.
