The Ministry of Development and Infrastructure and the Official School of Civil Engineers of the Region of Murcia awards the II Civil Works Awards of the Region whose objective is the promotion and development of quality in civil works and their cultural and social values, as well as promoting innovation, quality and creativity in this area.
Repara 2.0 is an industrial research and experimental development project, carried out thanks to the financial support of the CDTI (Center for technological and industrial development), within the CIEN call, in which seven Spanish companies specialized in different areas are involved in the project.
The aim of the project is the development of new technologies and methodologies that support the management of infrastructure and enable the renovation and conservation of any type of road at a lower economic and environmental cost, improving its adaptation to climate change.
