Second Generation of Eurocode 7 - Ground improvement

This online webinar, organised by ISSMGE ERTC10, CEN/TC 250/SC7 and delivered in partnership with the Dutch Standards Body NEN, aims to encourage geotechnical engineering professionals across Europe and the world to engage with the Eurocode 7 experts. While the next generation of the Eurocodes are being prepared, you can learn first hand about the upcoming changes and meet the experts digitally as they present the improvements and challenges.

There is no cost to participate in this webinar.

The webinar will cover the subject of the "Ground improvement", which is one of the completely new clauses of EN 1997-3 Eurocode 7 - Part 3: Geotechnical Structures, now fully brought into the scope of the Eurocode framework.

The agenda includes:
1. Introduction - Witold Bogusz, Jacobs & Secretary of ISSMGE ERTC10, Poland.
