History of the Conference Series

Colloquium on Concrete Research in Ireland

The first Colloquium on Concrete Research in Ireland was held in UCD in 1995 and has been held regularly ever since. The objective was to provide a forum for young and experienced researchers and practitioners to present and discuss their research work into all aspects of concrete technology.

Bridge Engineering Research in Ireland

The first Symposium on Bridge Engineering Research in Ireland was held in 2002 and it has since been a bi-annual event. In 2006, BRI was expanded to include topics relating to all aspects of transport infrastructure. The original objective of the event was to provide bridge researchers and practicing engineers with a forum to meet and discuss current research focuses and design/construction practice, while including experts from all areas of transport infrastructure.

The Joint CRI/BEI Conference Series - BCRI

In 2008, the first joint event was successfully held in NUI, Galway. The 2010 conference was held in Cork between UCC and CIT and was the first time either symposium was held in Cork.

The 2012 Conference

DIT and TCD are delighted to co-host the event as both departments have long and distinguished traditions in Civil and Structural Engineering education and research and have participated at BRI/CRI events since the symposiums conception.
