The current situation is marked by internationalization and competitiveness. In this context, there is a vital need for technological innovation and the exchange of experiences and viewpoints between professionals and researchers in the fields of building and civil engineering; this is what the Conference intends to enable through different panels and debates that will run parallel to presentations.
To promote once again the participation of junior engineers and architects, ACHE will reduce their inscription fees. Students, for whom the Conference means a fantastic formative activity, will also enjoy discounts and the opportunity to take part in the structural contest which will be announced at a later moment; the prize ceremony will be part of the event.
The venue chosen for this edition is Santander, a city open to the sea that has become nowadays as one of Europe’s most prominent smart cities. Together with its traditional hospitality and its numerous cultural activities, this makes the capital of the Cantabria region, in the north of Spain, a privileged meeting spot.
