Young Researchers Conferences

 

1st Young Researchers Conference and poster competition - Limassol, Cyprus - 27 January 2006

An important event for all of the researchers affiliated with the Network was organized in Cyprus in conjunction with the third Network progress meeting. Part of the organization of the conference was entrusted to the ESRs directly employed by the Network, who decided on the format of the presentations and prepared guidelines for poster preparation and submission and drafted the evaluation criteria. Network participants and members of fib TG 9.3 were actively involved in chairing the conference and judging the posters.

2nd Young Researchers Conference on “FRP Reinforcement in Construction” - Dübendorf, Switzerland - 17-18 January 2007

2nd Young Researchers Conference Winners

The 2nd Young Researchers Conference on “FRP Reinforcement in Construction” has been organised as part of the activities of the Mid Term meeting in January 2007. This event was organized with the support of fib TG 9.3 and Empa Akademie in Dubendorf, Switzerland. The conference sessions dealt with issues related to testing, design and application of FRP as reinforcement for stone, masonry and concrete structures. Several of the papers presented were invited for publication in a special issue of the international journal “Mechanics of Composite Materials”. After the conference, a visit to the Swiss Laboratory for Material Science and Technology was organized for all of the attendees. ESRs had the opportunity to discuss issues related to structural testing and learn about new experimental techniques.
