2020.11.24 Obituary
"Professor Giovanni Solari of the University of Genova has passed away. His achievements and contributions in the fields of wind engineering and structural engineering were countless. He was an advisory board member of our COE and GCOE programs for more than 10 years, and most recently, in 2019, he gave us a keynote speech at the International Workshop on Wind Effects on Buildings and Urban Environment held at TPU. May Professor Solari rest in peace.

2020.9.18 JURC Fellowships Program 2020 has been cancelled.

We would like to announce that unfortunately, the JURC Fellowships Program 2020 has been cancelled as a precaution against the global outbreak of COVID-19.
