2020 RILEM PhD grant awardees "in" Sheffield

Since 2018, RILEM awards a number of PhD students under the age of 35 from any of the countries where a special discount RILEM membership fee is applicable. This grant aims to support young researchers who could not otherwise attend the RILEM Annual Week. Due to the current pandemic, the grant this year "in" Sheffield came without the financial support to travel as the event was fully online. However, the remote participation of the awardees and the recognition of their research outcomes were ensured! Congratulations to the young minds who won the grant at the 74th RILEM Annual Week:
