The Young Concrete Researchers, Engineers and Technologist Symposium (YCRETS) aims to create a platform to bring together young individuals who work on the development, design and application of concrete and cementitious based materials, in Southern Africa.

The symposium aspires to:

  • Establish Southern Africa as a place of cutting edge research, innovation and engineering excellence in concrete materials and engineering.
  • Promote young researchers, engineers and technologists as the future leaders in the concrete engineering and construction industry.
  • Foster research collaborations between the different academic institutions and industry across Southern Africa.

The symposium aims to showcase the work undertaken by young individuals to the industry at large.

The symposium is open to presenters who are 35 years (in 2021) and younger and who either:

are research scholars (pursuing undergraduate or postgraduate studies) or members of academia

are architects, individuals from a construction management background, or any other fields of work directly/indirectly associated with concrete and concrete construction
