Networks/ cooperation activities/ sponsors

The current state of knowledge in the field of experimental structural safety assessment is the result of many years of cooperation with partners from other research institutions. The application reference was always supported by partners from industry.

On an international level, contacts exist with the universities in Prague (Czech Republic), Delft (Netherlands), Riga (Latvia), Edinburgh (Scotland), Ube (Japan) and Exeter (England).

In 2016, a mobility agreement was concluded with the CTU Prague in the field of ‘Construction and Civil Engineering’ within the ERASMUS+ programme. The contact will be actively maintained.
