HPC/CIC in Tromsø, Norway
The HPC/CIC is a combination of two events that will be held in Tromsø, Norway: 11th HPC and 2nd CIC. The first will take place from 6 to 7 March 2017 and the second from 7 to 8 March.
Delegates can participate at one or both events. HPC focuses on High Performance Concrete. The term itself implies more than strength: it denotes concrete that performs exceptionally well, ranging from rheology in fresh state to durability both as material and in construction processes/structures. Esthetics and architectural expression are also central in HPC. The 2nd Concrete Innovation Conference focuses on the needs expressed by both the industry and the society, such as energy saving, reduced CO2‐emission, resources use, efficient construction and higher performance to lower cost. The main themes covered during these conferences are Environmental friendliness (sustainability), Buildability (efficient construction techniques), Structural performance and Service life. An innovation contest will take place at the occasion of the HPC/CIC. It challenges the participants to present novel, but not limited to, innovative solutions that demonstrate how the concrete industry contributes to meet the future challenges of the society. The best solutions will be displayed for international media. For more information, please visit the official website.
