Adam Neville PhD Prize 2022 & Neville Centre of Excellence Symposium
8 December 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm
The University of Leeds and The Concrete Society launched The Adam Neville Prize for the best national PhD in the field of cement and concrete in 2018.
This prize is donated by the Neville family to honour the late Professor Adam Neville. Professor Neville was President of The Concrete Society from 1974 to 1975 and was head of the University of Leeds’ Department of Civil Engineering from 1968 to 1978. He was recognised internationally as a world-leading expert in concrete and wrote seminal textbook Properties of Concrete (Prentice Hall, 2011), known globally as the ‘concrete bible’ by engineering students.
The award, a £2,000 cash prize, is open to all students in the UK who are studying for a national PhD, either full- or part-time, in the field of cement and concrete.
As part of the PhD competition, shortlisted candidates are invited to present an overview of their PhD dissertations culminating in the announcement of the Adam Neville Prize for 2022.
