There are three grants to support outstanding research, each connected to research themes developed in partnership with industry:
Our Young Researchers' Conference showcases the most innovative work in universities around the world and issues prizes for outstanding projects and achievements in public speaking.
The fund is supported by members through voluntary donations. We currently allow an option for donations as part of our annual membership renewal process, but if you'd like to make a donation directly please contact our records team.
A unique opportunity to discuss the latest developments in intelligent and autonomous construction materials.
Bringing together practitioners, academics and students in a showcase of outstanding structural engineering research.
Six submissions were awarded grants in 2019.
Alastair Low-Macrae, of our Structural Futures Committee, discusses how drones could alter the face of construction and help future engineers.
Tim Lucas discusses the importance of research taking place at UCL’s new “Here East” facility and how it relates to the Institution’s Digital Workflows Panel.
Jon Shanks discusses the small steps being taken towards new means of construction and how they might relate to the industry’s next Big Leap.
Andy Tyas discusses his research into “blast engineering” – the study of how structures react to explosions.
Six previous winners of awards at the Young Researchers Conference update us on their careers and give their thoughts on the future of research and structural engineering.
