This paper presents in-situ applications of fiber reinforced polymers (FRP) and steel reinforced grouts (SRG) composites. Issues related to this type of application have been investigated in the last decade, mainly in Italy due to the growing need for repair or rehabilitation and conservation of the vast architectural heritage. The ten-year experience of the authors makes it possible to make some considerations and critical issues about first FRP-SRG applications on masonry construction. The aim is to show that cooperation between university research and enterprises may lead to an interesting and positive evolution of knowledge of technical solutions.
