Association - REPORT of the 75th RILEM ANNUAL WEEK
23rd September 2021

The report of the 75th RILEM Annual Week and the International Conference on Advances in Sustainable Construction Materials and Structures is available by clicking on the pdf symbol above.

The report contains the details of only the most important and relevant items. Unfortunately, it is hard to describe the details of the “less important” items, like the atmosphere in Merida during the event, the exquisite hospitality of the organisers, the taste of “pulpo maya” and “camarones en coco”.

RILEM would like to thank Prof. P. Castro-Borges, Prof. A....
