Partners are mostly associations or organisations similar to RILEM. They sign a MOU and agree on various collaborations with RILEM. The purpose of the relationship with Partners is to create information exchange between RILEM and industry partners who share similar values and interests, and to increase both partner’s opportunities to network in academia and practice. Staff members of Partners typically do not get directly involved in RILEM technical work such as Technical Committees, etc.
Our mission is to provide a fertile ground for studies on Concrete Science and Technology, to disseminate the progress of this discipline within the technical community, and to promote the application of the results of research.
