New corporate member
 
RILEM is thrilled to welcome a new institutional corporate member: Durham University. Founded in 1832, this university is the third oldest in England. It offers over 200 undergraduate courses and 100 taught postgraduate courses. At the Engineering Department, research activities cover a wide range of topics. Its research profile is similarly diverse with strengths in geotechnical engineering, all aspects of offshore wind and nanoelectronics.

NEW RILEM Management Assistant
 
It is with great pleasure that RILEM introduces Ms. Aurelie Martingale, the new RILEM Management Assistant. Aurelie joined RILEM in February this year after a previous work experience in the luxury hospitality industry. Aurelie will replace Ms. Fanta Sylla who joined RILEM in 2019. Fanta will be pursuing a career in screenwriting. The General Secretariat and the Presidency would like to thank Fanta for the excellent work done during her time in RILEM and wish her all the best for her new career step. Her efficiency and cordiality will be missed by all members!
