FIF1 proved to be a successful start the forum series, with around 50 to 60 delegates present each day.

Invitations to the forum were limited to a level that allowed for diverse yet inclusive conversation within the group. Each of the University forum partners had an opportunity to present their structural and geotechnical research.  While a small number of partners were unable to send a representative, 18 presentations provided an insight into the key areas of research. PDF versions of the presentations are available below. The presentations themselves were not recorded, but the slides give a sense of the current focus of research in the UK.

All the delegates were invited to participate in open discussion sessions. These sessions provided an opportunity for challenging dialogue on determining the most crucial areas for future research. The debate centred around the UK’s potential future infrastructure needs and delegates started to formulate research areas that would help prepare the UK to meet these needs.

Project ideas and key thoughts were collected from delegates on the second day. Key research ideas emerging from this process are broadly covered within the following themes and sub-themes:
