FGSV's head office in the heart of Cologne's old quarter
The Road and Transportation Research Association (FGSV) is a German non-profit-making organisation with a technical/scientific focus. It was founded in 1924. The main objective of the FGSV is to advance technical knowledge in all areas of road and transportation. It brings together professionals from academia and the public and private sectors. Over 2,500 of them are involved in the work of the FGSV's numerous expert bodies.
The staff at FGSV's head office in the heart of Cologne's old quarter co-ordinates the work of these expert bodies, prepares FGSV events, and produces technical standards and specifications. The FGSV library and archive are located in the same building.
