Get involved in EAD work

EOTA is committed to working in close cooperation with construction sector stakeholders. To ensure this, EOTA regularly publishes calls for experts for its open project teams and expert groups. These groups serve to prepare and develop future editions of European Assessment Documents (EAD), Technical Reports (TR) or other guidance documents supporting EOTA's work. Other important aims of these groups are to promote a common understanding of technical advances in the construction sector and to encourage an open expert dialogue.
