  • Fellows
     
    The fib considers that it is important to recognise fib members that have been active for many years and that have contributed to the goals of the fib.
     
    The fib fellows are elected on the basis of the following criteria:
    • They are current fib members and have been for the last 10 years
    • They have embraced the values of the federation,
    • They have provided continuous outstanding contributions to the development of concrete and concrete structures or to the development of the fib through the participation in Task Groups and Commissions or other means.
     
    The contributions for concrete structures can be in the areas of education, research, design and construction.
     
    The fib fellows will have the following benefits:
    • Being recognised at the fib Symposium or Congress of the year of selection
    • Being listed on the fib website
    • Being invited to incorporate the fib Fellow to his/her signature. The signature designation which will help branding and recognition for a fellow is:
    • "Name Lastname Ffib", to designate a person bestowed with the fib fellow.
     
    For more information, please download the detailed fib Fellows Conditions.
     
    Since the fib does not have, at the time of creation of the program, any fellows the Presidium has decided to designate all past fib Honorary members, fib medalists, Freyssinet medalists and fib Honorary Presidents as fellows of the fib.
