Young Researchers' Conference

Developing awareness among young engineers of the importance and potential of research in advancing structural engineering

The Young Researchers' Conference has been bringing young, forward-thinking researchers together with industry professionals and academics for the past 18 years.

Each year a shortlist of young researchers are invited to present their work to an audience of peers and industry professionals, with a chance to win prizes from a pot of £2000.

As well as the benefits that come from presenting at the Conference, delegates have the opportunity to network with other PhD researchers and industry professionals and discover other cutting edge research in the field of structural engineering.

The event regularly features a keynote speaker from outside the structural engineering fraternity. Recent examples included Lydia Hyde, Senior Scientist at BAE Systems, and Prof. Molly Stevens, of Imperial College London.

Our 2016 Conference took place on 6 April 2016. Read a report on the event here, and keep an eye on the website for updates about our 2017 Conference.
