Abstract: TRUSS: A Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network in the field of Structural Safety are a prestigious scheme funded by the European Union which aims to train a new generation of creative, entrepreneurial and innovative Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs), able to face current and future challenges and to convert knowledge and ideas into products and services for economic and social benefit [1]. A total 1161 proposals were evaluated as part of the H2020-MSCA-ITN-2014 call for a success rate of about 10.5%. The School of Civil Engineering in University College Dublin (UCD) is coordinating one of the 121 successful ITN proposals, titled TRUSS (Training in Reducing Uncertainty in Structural Safety, http://TrussITN.eu). TRUSS is a 4 year project with an estimated budget of €3.7 million that started on the 1st January 2015. Near 40% of the total budget is shared amongst Irish beneficiaries.
