The Nethercot Prize is awarded to early career architects, engineers, and designers (expected to be under 35 and based in the UK) who have submited a single author paper covering the process of designing a new structure or adapting an old one. The prize is named after Professor David Nethercot, President of IABSE 2013-2016.
Story telling is a key skill to successfully convey ideas during a project. Excellent quality work can easily be ignored if not accompanied with appropriate communication. This award aims to encourage the written communication skills of the participants and highlight the excellent project work that is carried out by IABSE early career professionals.
