The International Union of Laboratories and Experts in Construction Materials, Systems and Structures (RILEM, from the name in French) was founded in June 1947, with the aim to promote scientific cooperation in the area of construction materials and structures. Today, the new meaning of the acronym RILEM (Réunion Internationale des Laboratoires et Experts des Matériaux, systèmes de construction et ouvrages) emphasises its dominant focus on people as well as its worldwide activities, covering 70 countries.
The mission of the association is to advance scientific knowledge related to construction materials, systems and structures and to encourage transfer and application of this knowledge world-wide.
This mission is achieved through collaboration of leading experts in construction practice and science including academics, researchers, testing laboratories and authorities.
To prepare and widely disseminate outstanding RILEM products such as guides to good practice, recommendations (and if required also pre-standards), proceedings of symposia and workshops, state of the art reports, data basis, and International Journals.
