Dr Sebastian Skatulla is a recipient of the Claude Leon Merit Award for Early-Career Researchers which is given to encourage the outstanding scholarly achievements as a young researcher.
The Concrete Materials & Structural Integrity Research Unit has been successful in securing new funding for its research. In the past, the Unit was mainly funded by the Cement & Concrete Institute (C & CI), who channelled funding from the cement industry to tertiary institutions. Due to dynamic changes in the industry, the Institute closed down in 2013. Efforts were made to replace C & CI, and The Concrete Institute came into being, with the same mandate around education and training, but with a significantly reduced staffing and budget.
