Neville Centre of Excellence in Concrete and Cement Engineering
The aim of the Neville Centre is to become the first point of contact for both industry and academia to drive innovation and research-led education in cement and concrete. The Centre will focus on developing the links between current experts in the nano- and micro-structure and those in long-term macroscale performance.
With initiatives like industry-focused seminars, industry-funded part-time PhDs and increased consultancy activities, the Neville Centre will maximise industrial involvement and ensure the dialogue between fundamental research and practical application is productive.
A tribute to Professor Adam Neville
The Centre takes its name from Adam Neville, former Professor and Head of the Department of Civil Engineering from 1968 to 1978. Neville was recognised internationally as a world-leading expert in concrete and wrote the seminal textbook Properties of Concrete - known as the “concrete bible” by engineering students everywhere.
