fib Symposium 2021

The fib Symposium 2021 will be held in Lisbon from 14 to 16 June 2021, gathering together professionals, researchers and students from all over the globe to discuss ‘Concrete Structures: New Trends for Eco-Efficiency and Performance’.

Key-note speakers will address three most relevant topics: fib Model Code 2020, sustainable concrete, and high-performance structures. Also the latest scientific and technological innovations and the most impressive projects in structural concrete will be presented. An innovative session will be organized by the fib YMG. A students’ competition will take place, addressing the double challenge of optimizing concrete’s carbon footprint and performance for a specific structural application. Most relevant companies from the concrete construction industry will exhibit their products at the sponsors’ exhibition hall located at the symposium’s venue.

Lisbon is a breathtaking city with thousands of years of history and it was considered the Worlds’ Leading City Destination in 2018. Moreover, it is surrounded by astonishing magic sites nearby, such as Cascais and Sintra. The symposium is thus an excellent opportunity to combine work with leisure. A technical visit will be organized to a construction/rehabilitation site and a vast set of social activities and tours will be offered.

About Lisbon

Lisbon is a historical city where the sun shines 290 days a year and the temperature rarely drops below 15ºC. A city where you feel safe wandering around day or night, where the cuisine is dedicated to creating over a thousand ways to cook the beloved bacalhau (salted cod), and where you’ll find hotels and restaurants to suit every taste, budget and requirement. Discover Lisbon, a city full of authenticity where old customs and ancient history intermix with cultural entertainment and hi-tech innovation. Lisbon is ageless, but it loves company, as you’ll find out if you meet someone and ask them to explain, with lots of gestures and repetition, where the best place is to listen to Fado. After all, Lisbon is famous for its hospitality and the family-like way it welcomes visitors. (Turismo de Lisboa)
