Our colleague Professor Mette Rica Geiker has been awarded the 2021 Prize by the Danish concrete association (Link). The prize is awarded during the yearly “Danish Concrete Day” that gathers more than 200 professionals from the construction industry.
The Danish Concrete association argues that: “Professor Mette Geiker is very good at collaborating and over the years has built up a large international network. In this way, she has represented the cement for concrete research in Denmark in the most distinguished way. She is therefore a role model who can inspire young people to understand how much a career in concrete research can lead to.
Our colleague Professor Klaartje de Weerdt has been awarded the 2021 RILEM Robert L’Hermite Medal. The Robert L’Hermite medal is granted to recognise her outstanding and influential research in concrete durability, with a particular focus on understanding the mechanisms of attack on reinforced concrete by chloride and carbonation, designing concrete to resist deleterious alkali-silica reactions, and the use of blended cements to produce more sustainable, highly durable concrete. Her many contributions to these research topics show proof of leadership and active participation in RILEM Technical Committees, she is Deputy Chair of RILEM TC ASR and has been Work Package leader in RILEM TC 258-AAA. Her research is supported by an extensive portfolio of EU, national, and industry sponsorship, and she has made important and highly cited contributions to the scientific literature in the areas of cement hydration and concrete durability.
