Each year, SPRAT awards research grants to the two highest quality proposals with the greatest viability and the most benefit to the industrial rope access community. All proposals are reviewed by a panel of reviewers from the Research Grant Committee. Approved research will either be presented at the SPRAT Annual Conference for the year following the awarded grant, or by a written paper housed on the members only section of the SPRAT website.
Congratulations to the 2016 Research Grant Recipients! Mike Gilbert’s research entitled “A survey of the SPRAT Standards Representatives Regarding Two Tenets of Rope Access” and AllWest Facility Services Ltd. research entitled “Effects of Cyclic Loading on Connector Strength”.
