The Eurosteel conference series started in 1996 and has now run eight times in various European cities at three-year intervals. The 9th conference will take place at the University of Sheffield’s innovative Diamond Building, which received a Commendation at the 2016 Structural Steel Design Awards.
Eurosteel’s organisers said the 2020 conference will be coming to a city which has been fundamental to the development of modern steels and steel production, starting with Huntsman’s Crucible Process in the 18th Century.
The city has been the home to some of the industry’s major innovators, such as Henry Bessemer and Harry Brearley who invented the first stainless steel in a Sheffield laboratory.
Eurosteel is said to have developed into one of the major world conferences on steel construction, and includes sessions on all the main themes in structural steel research and innovation.
It provides an opportunity for leading practitioners to interact with researchers and the developers of the next generation of Eurocodes. The conference runs many parallel technical sessions (so there is sure to be something to interest all attendees) and also includes a commercial exhibition.
As a Conference supporter, the first 50 New Steel Construction readers registering to attend will receive a 10% discount on the full fee. More information is available on the Conference website (https://eurosteel2020.com), or contact the conference administration on firstname.lastname@example.org.
