SECED Fund 2023 Winner

We are happy to announce the winner of the SECED Fund 2023. The SECED Committee selected the proposal by Numan Aloko (PhD student at University of Bristol), titled “Cyclic Axial and Flexural Behaviour of Built-up Cold-Formed Steel Columns”. The Committee was impressed by Numan’s application that looks at the experimental testing of innovative building technology in seismic regions, fully aligned with the aims of SECED. The new round of applications for the SECED Fund will open in June 2024.
