Abstract: This report, Constructed Civil Infrastructure Systems R&D: A European Perspective, presents findings from the Civil Engineering Research Foundation's (CERF) 1993 international task force trip to western Europe. The report examines constructed civil infrastructure systems (CCIS) and their research and development (R&D) activities in the United Kingdom, Sweden, the Netherlands, Germany, France, and Italy. Findings from each country are presented, including state-of-the-art CCIS technology; R&D trends; processes and strategies for implementing innovation; and recommendations for improving CCIS in the U.S. The impact of the European Community (EC) on CCIS is also discussed.
