2021 RILEM PhD grant

This year, RILEM awarded three grants to PhD students less than 35 and coming from the countries where discounted RILEM fees apply. The awardees were:

Ms. Anusha Basavaraj, Indian Institute of Technology Madras, Chennai, India

Ms. Dyana Joseline, Indian Institute of Technology Madras, Chennai, India

Mr Lautaro Santillan, Universidad Nacional de la Plata, La Plata, Argentina.

Due to Covid restrictions, Anusha and Dyana could not travel to Mexico to attend the 75th RILEM Annual Week, but they will use the grant to travel to the next onsite RILEM event. Lautaro, instead, managed to attend the conference in person.

The conference was a great success with around 230 presentations authored by 770 scientists from 31 countries! Stay tuned as a detailed report will soon be available on our website
