The National Structural Integrity Research Centre (NSIRC) held its first annual conference on 23 June 2015. The conference gave NSIRC students their first opportunity to present their work in way of presentations or posters. Two Foundation-sponsored students, Laura Vivar and Galatee Levadoux, displayed posters at the event. The conference highlighted the high standard of NSIRC students and research that they are conducting.
