We are happy to announce that GEOLAB has launched its Second Call for Proposals to potential users among academia, SME, and industry to gain access to excellent research facilities in the fields of geotechnical and environmental engineering. This so-called Transnational Access is free of charge and includes technical & scientific support from the hosting facility. The theme of the present call is: ‘Experiments to study the pressures on Critical Infrastructure, e.g., impact of climate change, aging, increased usage, extreme weather events and geo-hazards’.
In our upcoming webinar, GEOLAB’s Second Transnational Access Webinar, we will be presenting an overview and update on project activities; examples of physical modelling of CI pressures; and fielding questions in relation to the presentations and access policy.
The event will take place on May 19th, 9:30 – 11:00 AM CET.
The webinar will be delivered by University of Cambridge, TU Delft, ETH Zurich, Deltares, CEDEX, NGI, Technical University of Darmstadt, University Gustave Eiffel, and University of Maribor.

GEOLAB is an European network of renowned institutes bringing together six geo-centrifuges and six other large research facilities: a geo-model container, a pile foundation test pit, a static liquefaction tank, a railway track simulator, a large-scale triaxial apparatus and a set of field test sites. The project is funded by the European Commission Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme. The overarching aim of GEOLAB is perform ground-breaking research and innovation that enhances the resilience of Europe’s Critical Infrastructure.
