Background and General Information

A strategy and a general programme for promotion and training on the Eurocodes have been established through the project entitled Support to the implementation and further development of the Eurocodes. In line with this strategy, JRC in collaboration with DG ENTR, CEN TC250 and Russian experts has organised two training workshops in Moscow in 2008 and 2010: (i) Eurocodes: a tool for building safety and reliability enhancement; (ii) Training the trainers: Basis of Design, Eurocode 1 and Eurocode 2.

The third meeting of the "EU-Russia Regulatory Dialogue: Construction Sector Subgroup" was held in Moscow (26 January 2012) with the participation of DG ENTR, JRC and CEN. The major objective of the meeting was to progress towards an Action Plan for the implementation of the European Standards and in particular of the Eurocodes in Russia. As part of the Working Plan decided, it was agreed that JRC-ELSA will organise a seminar on Bridge Design with Eurocodes for selected Russian experts.


The main objective of the seminar is to promote the adoption of the Eurocodes for bridge design in Russia and facilitate further implementation steps.

In particular, it is envisaged that the seminar and round table discussion will serve the following objectives:

  • Provide information on policy of Eurocodes implementation to the Russian delegates;
  • Address design aspects demonstrating that Eurocodes are innovative standards;
  • Present examples of bridges designed to Eurocodes;
  • Explain why Eurocodes can lead to advanced, yet economic solutions for the design of bridges;
  • Setup of expert working groups with EU and Russian experts to facilitate implementation of Eurocodes (e.g. setting up of NDPs, drafting of National Annexes).
