Ferrovial and the Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) have formally agreed to advance innovation in transport infrastructure.
They’ll do joint research and offer new educational and development opportunities for students.
The pair have collaborated on research and recruitment for several years.
Georgia Tech researches traffic engineering, construction, airports, and energy, all of which is relevant to Ferrovial as an infrastructure builder and as concessionaire for toll highways and airports.
Ferrovial’s highways business Cintra runs five major managed lane projects across the US.
“Georgia Tech is globally recognised for its expertise in infrastructure and mobility, research, and development,” said Andres Sacristan, Cintra chief executive.
He said that by teaming up with Georgia Tech, “we can continue to improve the traveler experience and better serve our clients by providing new mobility solutions”.
Georgia Tech president Ángel Cabrera said the partnership would “drive the future of transportation and mobility, which will bring valuable technological innovation and knowledge transfer to our state”.
