IDRRIM : The Institute for Roads, Streets and Mobility Infrastructure

Who we are


IDRRIM rallies all the public and private bodies operating in the mobility and urban spaces infrastructures sector.

Created in 2010 at the initiative of the Ministry of Ecology, Energy, Sustainable Development and Territorial Development, the Assembly of the Departments of France and the national private-sector engineering and public works federations, the Institute proposes a framework for reflection and action resulting in a jointly-produced and shared repository of common data.

Serving as a meeting and exchange forum, its purpose is to provide consistent responses to technical and strategic issues and promote the development of infrastructure assets and public spaces toward sustainable design and management and increasing optimisation of their use. IDRRIM also strives to promote and expand the reputation of French technical expertise in Europe and abroad.

Bringing together 50 members representing the public and private sectors (government agencies, local authorities, public and private engineering firms, partnership-based associations, training and research organizations) and more than 40 local authorities, individual companies and engineers, the Institute rallies all the public and private players of the transport infrastructure sector.
