International exchange of experience

The scientific cooperation between the BASt and state institutions as well as commercial enterprises in Russia will be frozen with immediate effect until further notice. Research funds and the results of our research and development projects will no longer benefit Russia until further notice. There will be no joint scientific and research policy events and no exchange of scientists until further notice. New cooperation projects between the BASt and state institutions as well as commercial enterprises in Russia will not be initiated at present.

We regret this step very much, but in view of Russia's aggressive military action against Ukraine, we see no other choice. We stand for diverse international cooperation on the basis of peaceful coexistence of all nations and people. Unfortunately, Russia's military actions against Ukraine mean that this basis for cooperation is no longer given.

Our collaboration with worldwide sister institutions enables an intensive exchange of scientific experience. The oldest cooperation agreement was concluded in 1978 with TECHNION, the Israel Institute of Technology. Aim was and is it to increase road safety in both countries. Overall, cooperation agreements exist with 19 partner institutes in 12 countries.
