Update. Research Matters!.. The Concrete Industry Alliance Research and Development Task Group

In the spring of 1995 the British Cement Association was asked by the Department of the Environment to set up an organisation to represent the interests of the whole concrete industry. The concrete industry really consists of many separate industries, making it difficult, if not impossible, to create an organisation which could represent the interests of all on every matter. Nevertheless, at a meeting of the main associations within the industry, it was agreed that there were issues common to the industry as a whole that would benefit from a consensus approach. The Concrete Industry Alliance (CIA) was therefore formed with 18 founder members; full membership has now risen to 26, and an associate-membership category created to permit academics and representatives of individual companies to participate in the alliaance.
