Our international activities
As a leading motorway operator in Europe, ASFINAG has an international presence and network. Our international activities are based on three pillars:
- Representation of ASFINAG in Brussels
- Membership in international organisations and involvement in international projects
- Obtaining and processing EU funding for ASFINAG projects
- Assigning ASFINAG employees to commercial consulting projects abroad
Active participation on the EU level
Through our liaison office in Brussels we have a say when it comes to important framework conditions regarding the construction, financing, operation and tolling of motorways and expressways. This ensures that international developments are identified early and the interests of ASFINAG and Austria are actively taken into consideration by the European institutions. The office manager is Bernhard Jelinek: ASFINAG Liaison Office Brussels, Rond-Point Schuman, 11, B-1040 Brussels, Phone: +32 2 256 75 74.
In touch with the times through international partnerships
Via our international partnerships, for example with ASECAP (association of European motorway concessionaires and operators of tolled road infrastructures), IBTTA (International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Association), PIARC (World Road Association), CEDR (Conference of European Directors of Roads) and ERTICO (ITS Europe), we obtain additional important information about international developments and technical innovations in the road sector. Important priorities in this context include multimodality, climate change, the environment and sustainability.
The comprehensive expertise of our pool of experts
Through our employees at ASFINAG Commercial Services GmbH (ACS), we can "test" our own expertise abroad and also gain new experiences. The ACS sees itself as a hub between the group and the international market on the one hand, and as an intermediary between ASFINAG experts and international suppliers on the other.
We rely on our pool of ASFINAG experts from the different company divisions for commercial (consulting) projects; this gives our (international) clients access to diverse and high-quality knowledge. And vice versa, we benefit from gaining new knowledge for ASFINAG from our international work and from project execution.
