fib Season's Greetings 2021 



Dear Colleagues,


As we approach the end of the year, we would like to take a moment to reflect on these last few months.


The theme of the fib Symposium 2020 organised by the Chinese National Delegation was “Concrete Structures for Resilient Society”, which we find extraordinarily relevant given the current circumstances. Beyond the resilience shown by concrete structures in trying circumstances, this year has demanded resilience from society as a whole and, by extension, from associations that serve society.


2020 has been uncommonly challenging in every aspect, and yet has proven to be an unparalleled opportunity for growth and resourcefulness.


Among the achievements this past year has brought, we would like to mention:

  • The fib Symposium 2020, which was organised by the Chinese National Delegation, was rescheduled and took place entirely online in November.
  • The 13th fib International PhD Symposium, which was organised by the French National Delegation, also took place online in August. The in-person edition will be held on 21-23 July 2021 in Paris.
  • The fib Young Members Group organised nine free webinars, which are available for replay on the fib YouTube channel.
  • We held three online conference cycles on the fib latest developments, conceptual design, and perspectives on structural concrete to increase the visibility of women within the fib.
  • We implemented an online meeting system to help fib working groups to keep on meeting.
  • We implemented a viewer in our website so that fib members can view CEB, FIP and fib publications online.
  • Five fib Bulletins and six Structural Concrete issues were published.
  • We launched a mentorship programme within the fib.
  • We held the Presidium, the Technical Council and the General Assembly online.
  • We launched an fib Fellows award within our members.


All this has been made possible thanks to the dedication of the fib members. Thank you! We hope to achieve many great endeavours next year as well.


We would be delighted to implement new ideas to help the dissemination of knowledge and facilitate the working groups' activities. Please let us know if you have any suggestions.


We wish you and your loved ones good health and the very best for this holiday season and the coming year! 


With kind regards,

The fib Secretariat
David, Corinne, Marie-Laure, Marie
