Message from the president: Harald S. Müller's vision
Harald S. Müller, who became the president of the fib at the beginning of 2015, states in the March edition of Structural Concrete that he will build on the considerable accomplishments already achieved in the organization by ‘developing a vision that looks beyond the horizon.’ His three watchwords are ‘strategy, development and globalization’. He aspires, among other things, to continuously update fib research, to give sustainability a leading role and to define the organization’s position in the global scene.
