The ReWire group will focus on joint scientific publications with scientists from the international knowledge network to provoke wider international recognition. During the project, the following priorities will be addressed:

  1. publication in international journals (Q1 & Q2)
  2. presentations at international conferences
  3. writing project proposals for funding.

Activities will also include events to disseminate the project results, such as the workshop “Cementitious building materials reinforced with waste fibres” and “Long-term behaviour of fibre-reinforced cementitious materials”.
