The Conference aims to inspire structural engineers and infrastructure managers to help forming and maintaining an innovative and sustainable built environment. The enormous impact and longtime effect of the built environment motivates us to catch the opportunities that we have in front of us and helps us ensure the best decisions by politicians and other decision makers.
The conference format is chosen to facilitate debates and discussions. Each session will be actively lead and animated by Session Facilitators. Participants will explicitly have the possibility to mutually interact productively via session styles that will encourage interaction.
Valuable results identifying new subjects for further research and debates will be identified by the Session Facilitators and the Scientific Committee for further consideration by IABSE’s Technical Committee. New collaborations may be suggested to bring identified subjects forward in the coming years. It is hoped that active conference participants will return home enriched by substantial more knowledge and as part of a global network of experts in structural engineering.
