About the event

Eurosteel Sheffield 2021
1–3 September

Over the past 25 years this conference has become Europe's major forum for presentation and discussion of the whole range of topics surrounding research, design and construction of steel structures.

Eurosteel has consistently attracted more than 500 delegates from countries across the world, and is now an essential event for academic researchers at all levels, as well as designers and fabricators. It provides a great opportunity for industry and academia to meet and discuss real-world problems where research is needed, as well as the opportunities provided by leading-edge research.

In Sheffield we increased the number of sessions in which both academia and industry could learn from one another. Hence we were particularly interested in paper proposals from practitioners in design, fabrication and construction, as well as the mainstream research specialities. Invited keynote lectures covered major themes in current research, as well as the real-world context of current steel construction.

Young researchers particularly benefitted from attending. The conference allowed them to present their research findings and discuss them with the leading experts in their fields, to appreciate the state of the art in other areas of research and practice, and to generate ideas by interacting with practitioners. The conference has traditionally attracted delegates from academia and industry world-wide.
