Reston, Va. – The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) has partnered with Research4Life, a global initiative aimed at reducing the knowledge gap between high-income and low-and-middle-income countries by providing access to critical scientific research. This initiative aligns with ASCE’s commitment to foster inclusive growth and development in the field of civil engineering.

“Through this collaboration, we are breaking down the barriers that prevent talented researchers from participating fully in the global exchange of knowledge,” said Dana Compton, Publisher, ASCE. “We believe that by sharing our resources, we can empower more individuals to contribute to the advancement of civil engineering worldwide.”

Research4Life’s partnership with ASCE will enable individuals and institutions in low-income regions to access cutting-edge research, case studies, and technical papers that are crucial for education, practice, and innovation in civil engineering.

“We are thrilled to welcome ASCE to the Research4Life family,” said Sarah Phibbs, Director, Research4Life Publisher Partnerships. “Their contribution is vital to our mission of bridging the knowledge divide, and together, we can build a more equitable and sustainable future.”
