PhD Student Award Edition 2018

Innovation in Concrete Structures and Cementitious Materials


As for the previous two editions, the III Edition of the PhD Student Award "Innovation in Concrete Structures and Cementitious Materials" aims at favoring the mutual understanding and cooperation between Research and Building Industry and Professions.

The initiative is organized by the ACI Italy Chapter and supported by Federbeton. It consists in the acknoledgment of the best three PhD theses about concrete structures and materials defended in 2016, 2017 and 2018.

Long abstracts were judged by a Scientific Committee and the accepted long abstracts are collected in a volume.

The III Edition of the PhD Student Award is dedicated to Prof. Giacomo Moriconi, recently deceased. Prof. Moriconi was a member of the Association Board, one of the most active counselors and promoter of this award, which is destinated for young researchers, therefore for those students to whom Prof. Moriconi has dedicated an important part of his life.

The award cerimony took place on October 19, 2018 at the SAIE of Bologna (Arena Federbeton Pad. 26 stand B24). Click here to read the program of the event.
