Bažant Elected Foreign Associate of the Engineering Academy of Japan

Zdeněk P. Bažant was elected as Foreign Associate of the Engineering Academy of Japan (EAJ). The academy has approximately 600 individual members and about 15 foreign associates. EAJ members are elected from leading positions in Japanese engineering and technological sciences. “They are people who consider it their duty to employ their knowledge and experience in engineering and technological sciences not just to promote engineering in Japan, but also to cooperate as volunteers in the continuous development of mankind around the globe.”

This becomes Bažant’s 12th foreign academy membership: three American academies (NAE, NAS, AAAS), Royal Society of London, six foreign national academies, and two other European academies.
