Im Rahmen der diesjährigen Beton-Tage 2020 in Neu-Ulm (größtes Branchentreffen der Beton- und Fertigteilindustrie in Europa) wurde das Netzwerk für den innovativen Massivbau Baden-Württemberg „solidUNIT“ (www.solid-unit.de) gegründet (https://www.solid-unit.de/startschuss-fuer-solid-unit-das-netzwerk-fuer-den-innovativen-massivbau/). Die Materialprüfungs- und Forschungsanstalt Karlsruhe (MPA Karlsruhe) ist Mitglied des Fachbeirats, welcher die Industrie forschungsseitig berät.

 

Durch die International Union of Laboratories and Experts in Construction Materials, Systems and Structures (RILEM) wurde ein neues Technisches Komitee (Technical Committee, TC) eingerichtet, das sich mit Fragen der mechanischen Eigenschaften von Betonen auf Basis alkalisch-aktivierter Bindemittel auseinandersetzt (TC MPA). Professor Dehn hat den stellvertretenden Vorsitz des TC übernommen (https://www.rilem.net/groupe/mpa-mechanical-properties-of-alkali-activated-concrete-389).
