Dr. van der Ree talked about approaches to incorporate experiments into road projects. He discussed examples of different types of experiments (ranging from tests of minor mitigation measures to road-project full-scale experiments) and explained what lessons could be learned from these. Well designed experiments could be crucial for the development of effective remedies.
Dr. van der Grift and Dr. van der Ree both addressed the IENE 2012 Main topic
