On 6 and 7 February 2019 the 3rd General Assembly of the Endurcrete Project took place at the FCIAC’s facilities (the Foundation of the Andalusian Innovation Centre for Sustainable Construction) in Córdoba (Spain). 16 partners from 13 different countries form the Endurcrete partnership. Due to the imminent beginning of the Endurcrete’s concrete samples fabrication to be tested, this has been a key meeting. Thus, while the first day of the meeting all attendees met together to review the work done until now by each partner, as well as a quick summary about the next steps to carry out; the second day there were parallel sessions in which coming works were defined more specifically, designing the samples and procedures for the testing tasks in order to obtain data for the final product development.
I-Box, who is involved in this project synthetizing a brand new and innovative smart corrosion inhibitor specially designed for offshore environments’ concrete, we’ve determined together with the involved partners, the most suitable composition of samples and best testing locations for each one. Now a very exciting period begins, we’ll pilot all the work developed until now, transferring all ideas and concepts investigated during the first months of the project to the test fields.
The next meeting will be held in Brussels, on July 2019, where first phases of the test will be evaluated.
