Become a RILEM member and join a RILEM TC
 
A RILEM member that joins a TC, beside the benefits available here, enjoys many more valuable rewards. For young researchers, belonging to a TC means being in touch with the most knowledgeable experts of the areas of research covered by the TC and therefore working in a nourishing and stimulating environment; citing a sentence from Robert Torrent, 2016 RILEM Honorary member, “It is like for a young player to have had the opportunity to play with Pelé, Maradona or nowadays with Messi”. It also means creating an important network of contacts that can only be advantageous for their career. For senior members, the TC is an opportunity to mentor younger people, to put their experience and knowledge at the service of a wider community and to share expertise for the benefit of the society.
