“Imagine all the people. Sharing all the world...”


From the perspective of the president, vice-president, and past-president, we are very pleased to bring you this (belated) newsletter. For many people, the year has probably been difficult and hectic. In RILEM, we too have had our pressures, but we are pleased to report that due to good teamwork across the association, we have made substantial progress. Rewarding teamwork is one of the nice things about RILEM, it is a place where friendships develop, in the Technical Committees, the standing Committees and with the staff and all members at large. Unlike in politics where quite often the president and past president are opponents, the contrary is true in our association and this gives much satisfaction and stable grounds for the future.

Much has been accomplished in 2015. Let us bring a few things in retrospect. 

New staff has been recruited and since April, we are pleased to welcome Anne to support Gilberte and Pascale in the SG office in Bagneux. Anne has been trained in large international organizations (OECD and US Embassy) and has developed in her former job good experience with web development, which is surely a welcome reinforcement for the secretariat. 

Soon the small office in Bagneux on the sixth floor of a somewhat outdated building in the southern outskirts of Paris is going to be history for RILEM. Over the last year, discussions have taken place with a number of RILEM titular members situated in and around Paris to explore the opportunity for the secretariat to join and develop synergies with a larger entity. In the end, we had to make a difficult choice between 3 good and friendly offers. So we can inform that the general secretariat will relocate in the course of January to premises of CSTB (Centre Scientifique et Technique du Bâtiment) at Avenue du Recteur Poincaré in the 16th arrondissement, close to Radio France, the Seine and the Eiffel tower. Yet it was with sincere regret that we had to decline the generous offers from colleagues at La Defense and in Marne La Vallée.
