16 June 2022

Promoting research and development in the field of transport infrastructure management and road safety: these are the objectives of the 'Abertis Chair' award set up by the Abertis Group, the Abertis Foundation and A4 Holding in Italy as well, through collaboration with the University of Padua and, in particular, with the technical direction of the Department of Civil, Construction and Environmental Engineering (ICEA).

This initiative is part of the international project of the Abertis Group, which has successfully promoted it since 2003 in Spain, creating the 'Abertis Chair' award for transport infrastructure management. The experience was then borrowed in the main countries where the Group is present, always in collaboration with local universities, and since 2016 it has also been extended to studies in road safety issues (

The "Abertis Chair" award for the year 2021, at its first edition in Italy, will be presented on June 28, 2022 at the University of Padua in the historic Palazzo Bo. The event will also be an opportunity for dialogue between representatives of the academic world, institutions and companies on the issues of sustainable mobility and road safety.
