Research and development are crucial for the future of our profession, and help to ensure that the structures we design are safe, efficient and sustainable. The primary role of the Institution's Research Panel, which comprises members from both industry and academia, is to support and promote research through our various grant schemes and initiatives. We also seek to enhance engagement between academia and industry to maximise the impact of research. Our key resource is the Institution's Research Fund, which relies heavily on annual donations from members. In this article, we set out our initiatives, priorities and future plans.
In this section we shine a spotlight on papers recently published in Structures – the Research Journal of The Institution of Structural Engineers. Structures is a collaboration between the Institution and Elsevier, publishing internationally-leading research across the full breadth of structural engineering which will benefit from wide readership by academics and practitioners. Access to Structures is free to Institution members (excluding Student members) as one of their membership benefits, with access provided via the ‘My account’ section of the Institution website. The journal is available online at: www.structuresjournal.org
