Since its inception in 1996, this PhD Symposium has evolved into a highly respected scientific meeting, connecting young researchers and high-profile scientists alike. This event provides an excellent opportunity for PhD students to share scientific thoughts and findings with the international research community from all over the world in the fields of: innovation in materials and structures, construction technology, structural analysis and design, durability and life assessment, sustainability and life cycle assessment and monitoring and structural assessment.

Organised by the FIB (fédération internationale du béton), the 2020 symposium brought together more than 40 pre-selected international PhD students, including Aliénor Gauthier-Pouyanne.

Aliénor is a PhD student in the GeM Laboratory within the EDYCEM chair. She won the prize for the best presentation in the Durability and Life Assessment category for her PhD work on "Leaching of cement-based mortar: sensitivity to calcium and carbonate ions", supervised by Professor Ahmed Loukili, Dr. Emmanuel Rozière and Dr. Benoit Hilloulin. After defending her thesis in December 2020, Eleanor will occupy the position of Research Engineer in the Edycem chair.

Well done to the EDYCEM chair!
