Our Research Panel supports outstanding research through grant giving and by supporting our annual Young Researchers Conference.

The Panel promotes the effective dissemination and application of the results of research to enhance the practice of structural engineering and influence the direction of future research priorities. The Panel’s main activities are:



Panel structure:
  • Chair
  • Vice Chair
  • Up to 24 other members (including members of various grades and those based in different locations)

 

Get involved:

We invite expressions of interest in Panel membership each September, contacting all members except Student Members.

Members of the Panel are expected to fully participate in supporting and driving the panels activities forward.

There are many ways that you can contribute to the activities of the group, and you will be expected to do some work outside the meetings, for example drafting or reviewing guidance and keeping up to date on the latest developments around the topic of research.

The Panel meet four times a year. A maximum of one meeting will be in person at Institution HQ, whilst all other meetings are held online. Online access to meetings is always available.

Contact the Panel if you have questions about their work.
