Young Engineers Programme


IABSE Young Engineers Awards

Any Young Engineer, who personally presents his/her paper as the main author at the Symposium, will be considered for recognition. An independent jury will select the two best contributions, and each will receive a prize of 1,000 EURO. The prizes are offered by the IABSE Fellows and the Organising Committee and will be announced at the closing Session of the Symposium.


IABSE Happy Hour

An icebreaker challenging game bringing together two generations, Young and Senior Engineers, is proposed to the Symposium participants, composed of groups of six participants randomly selected at the registration stage. The event will be held at the Cloisters of the Alberto Sampaio Museum and includes a structural engineering quiz with an interactive platform, ambient music and cocktail. Awards will be granted to the best performance.The event is limited to 150 participants.


IABSE Tank

During the Symposium, a competition aimed at promoting the development of new ideas (e.g. innovative products, materials, techniques, software, services, etc.) applied to the structural engineering will take place. Symposium participants can take part in this competition according to the rules, listed on here.
