The objective of the EUROPEAN STEEL BRIDGE AWARDS is to give European recognition to outstanding steel and composite bridges emphasizing the many advantages of steel in sustainable construction, production, economy and architecture.

The Awards are opened to steel and composite bridges which steel structures were fabricated in the ECCS full members’ countries. The construction must have been completed and be ready for use within the last three years.

Bridges, footbridges and renovation projects (major retrofit, expansion or rehabilitation) are eligible.

Bridge awards take place every two years.


The 5th EUROPEAN STEEL BRIDGE AWARDS competition will open on March 2018 and the Awards ceremony will take place on 11th September 2018 in Prague, at the end of the 9th International Symposium on Steel Bridges.

Submissions are through national associations of steel contractors, i.e. ECCS full members. Please contact them if you want to submit a project.
