The fostering of international co-operation in the road and transportation sector is another important task for the FGSV. On behalf of the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI), the FGSV acts as the German National Committee for the World Road Association (AIPCR/PIARC).

The FGSV works closely with corresponding associations in neighbouring countries: the CROW (the Netherlands), the FSV (Austria), the VSS (Switzerland), the PKD (Poland), and the MAUT (Hungary). It also holds joint information events with these research associations.

Every year, the D-A-CH information event is held in either Germany, Austria, or Switzerland. Once every two years, the CROW information event is held in either the Netherlands or Germany. The FGSV also maintains permanent contact with other international and foreign institutes.

The D-A-CH information event

The D-A-CH information event takes the form of a series of workshops. The themes addressed by the workshops are agreed by the research associations from the three countries involved, Austria, Germany, and Switzerland.

The people taking part in the workshops are selected from the relevant bodies within the individual research associations. In other words, the workshops are not open to the public.

About 2–3 months after the D-A-CH information event, the results of the workshops are published in the FGSV's magazines Straße und Autobahn (Highway and Motorway) and Straßenverkehrstechnik (Road Traffic Engineering)

CROW information event

The CROW information event is a closed information-sharing event organised by the Dutch research association CROW (Centrum voor Regelgeving en Onderzoek in de Grond-, Water- en Wegenbouw en de Verkeerstechniek) and the FGSV. It takes place once every two years and takes the form of a series of workshops.

The themes addressed by the workshops are agreed by the research associations from both countries. The people taking part in the workshops are selected from the relevant bodies within the two research associations. In other words, the workshops are not open to the public.
