The development of novel and smart infrastructure materials, driven by the desire to reduce the costs of their maintenance and their significant environmental impact, is attracting the attention of researchers, academics, industrialists and policy makers across the world. Infrastructure materials with self-sensing, self-healing and self- adapting capabilities, and tailored materials such as engineered cementitious composites are just a few examples of the research areas that are of interest.
Furthermore, as governments and environmental agencies introduce stricter regulations to fight climate change, the construction and infrastructure industry needs to innovate both in terms of the resilience and durability of the materials it uses and in the specification, design and construction of the infrastructure that it delivers.

RM4L2020 is being organised under the auspices of the on-going EPSRC-funded Resilient Materials 4 Life (RM4L) project. RM4L2020 will take place in September 2020 in Cambridge and will bring a unique opportunity to discuss the latest developments in intelligent and autonomous construction materials. The scope of the conference encompasses research, innovation, design and implementation. In particular, the conference will include a number of dedicated sessions on biomimetic materials that have the ability to self-sense, self-immunise, self-heal, self-repair and self-adapt.

It is the aim of the conference to provide a forum for discussion, exchanging new ideas, establishing new friendships and collaborations, as well as for the dissemination of the latest research findings on these materials.
“On behalf of the organizing committee and the Resilient Materials 4Life (RM4L) consortium, we have the pleasure to invite you to RM4L2020 in Cambridge. We look forward to welcoming you in Cambridge and Churchill College in September 2020″
