Giatec Paper Awards

Share Your Research With a Global Scientific Community

Giatec’s annual research paper contest is a great opportunity for civil engineers to expose their research and development to a global audience of industry experts. The “Giatec Award for Best Paper” is open to civil-engineering professors, students (undergraduate and graduate), and researchers across the U.S. and Canada.

In addition to receiving an award of $1,000 USD, the author of the winning article will:

  • Present their paper at Giatec’s annual Net Zero Construction Conference
  • Be featured on the Giatec blog, which has a global audience of 150,000 industry experts
  • Be shared across all of Giatec’s social media channels, where we engage with 50,000+ users each month

Getting this kind of exposure on a global scale is a huge advantage for researchers, especially students who are just beginning to grow their professional networks and careers.

We will soon be opening 2022 submissions.
