The International Union of Laboratories and Experts in Construction Materials, Systems and Structures (RILEM) was founded in June 1947, with the aim to promote scientific cooperation in the area of construction materials and structures. The mission of the association is to advance free-access scientific knowledge related to construction materials, systems and structures and to encourage transfer and application of this knowledge world-wide
The three main goals of RILEM are:
- To promote sustainable and safe construction, and improved performance and cost benefit for society,
- To stimulate new directions of research and its applications, promoting excellence in construction,
- To favor and promote interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary cooperation at international scale by open access to advanced knowledge.
Saintgits College of Engineering joined as a Corporate Member of RILEM, France on April 2022.
