About this event

The Networking Event will consist of series of workshops delivered by GEOLAB and ELGIP with a specific focus on Joint Research and Innovation.

Project GEOLAB's Research Infrastructure (RI) consists of 11 unique installations in Europe aimed to study subsurface behaviour and the interaction with structural CI elements (e.g. a bridge) and the environment. The overarching aim of GEOLAB is to integrate and advance these key national research infrastructures towards a one-stop-shop of excellent physical research infrastructure for performing ground-breaking research and innovation to address challenges faced by the Critical Infrastructure of Europe.

At the Networking Event, dedicated workshops will be delivered by the University of Cambridge, TU Delft, ETH Zurich, Deltares, CEDEX, NGI, Technical University of Darmstadt, University Gustave Eiffel and the University of Maribor. Esteemed guest speakers will also be presenting on the day.

This event has been organised in collaboration with ELGIP (European Large Geotechnical Institutes Platform), which is a consortium of major European research organizations in geo-engineering, that have joined forces since 2002. Each organisation has a strong national position working in research, development, and innovation. Currently, ELGIP comprises 15 members, which employ in total over 2000 professional research staff. ELGIP is member of the European Council for Construction Research, Development and Innovation (ECCREDI). Furthermore, ELGIPs member are (strongly) involved in the European Construction Technology Platform (ECTP), the Forum of European National Highway Research Laboratories (FEHRL) the Renewable Heating and Cooling European Technology Platform (RHC ETP) and a large number of European research, development and innovation projects within its framework programmes.
