IABSE Congress 2016
The main theme 'Challenges in Design and Construction of an Innovative and Sustainable Built Environment' is presently a highly topical theme. The economic growth of th global community in combination with the increasing population worldwide results in a higher consumpti of all kinds of resources. During the last year we have also witnessed an increasing number of refugees which leaves both society and infrastructure with an enormous challenge.
At the same time we must not forget the global communities’ challenge to reduce the use of resources and reach a sustainable development and create an environmentally friendly way of living.
As structural and civil engineers we have an important role to play in confronting these great challenges and what better way could there be to prepare taking these challenges on board than joining our union of structural engineers and come together in Stockholm.
We very much welcome you to an interesting and exciting congress in a warm and friendly Stockholm!
