13th fib PhD Symposium 2020-2021 in Paris, France Session 2 | Closing Ceremony

Since its conception in 1996, the fib PhD Symposium has evolved into a highly respected scientific meeting, connecting young researchers and high-profile scientists alike.

This event provides then an excellent opportunity for PhD students to share scientific thoughts and findings with the international research community from all over the world in the following fields: innovation in materials and structures, construction technology, structural analysis and design, durability and life assessment, sustainability and life cycle assessment and monitoring and structural assessment.

The 13th fib International PhD-Symposium in Civil Engineering should have been held in 2020 in Paris.

In mid-2020, in response to the COVID 19 pandemic, the Organising Committee of the PhD Symposium in Paris has decided in accordance with the fib to hold a 2020 online session of the PhD Symposium on 26-28 August 2020 with the hope of being able to propose an in-person second session in 2021.


The fib, Fédération internationale du béton, is a not-for-profit association formed by 41 national member groups in 104 countries and approximately 1000 corporate and individual members. The fib’s mission is to develop at an international level the study of scientific and practical matters capable of advancing the technical, economic, aesthetic and environmental performance of concrete construction.

The knowledge developed and shared by the fib (fib Bulletins, fib events, fib workshops, fib courses, etc.) is entirely the result of the volunteer work provided by the fib members.

The fib was formed in 1998 by the merger of the Euro-International Committee for Concrete (the CEB) and the International Federation for Pre-stressing (the FIP). These predecessor organizations have existed independently since 1953 and 1952, respectively.
