TERRE: Training Engineers and Researchers to Rethink geotechnical Engineering for a low carbon future
TERRE is a network of academic and non-academic partners aimed to foster the development of novel geo-technologies to address the competitiveness challenge of the European construction industry in a low carbon agenda.
The TERRE network builds upon a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (ITN-ETN) funded by the H2020 Programme of the EC (H2020-MSCA-ITN-2015) under grant agreement ETN-GA-2015-675762. This project run from 1 November 2015 to 30 October 2019 and was delivered through an inter-sectoral and intra-European coordinated PhD programme focused on carbon-efficient design of geotechnical infrastructure. Early Stage Researcher final presentations can be viewed on the project YouTube Channel.
The network TERRE will continue to support initiatives to promote Low-Carbon Geotechnical Engineering.
TERRE is co-organising together with Alert Geomaterials the
11th ALERT Olek Zienkiewicz Course 2020:
Looking into the rhizosphere: the interface between plant science and soil mechanics
to be held in Glasgow on November 2020 and co-ordinated by Professor Alessandro Tarantino (University of Strathclyde) and Professor Enrique Romero (UPC). Information about this Course will be provided shortly through the TERRE portal.
TERRE has promoted the creation of a Task Force on ‘Low-carbon geotechnical engineering’ within the TC308 Energy Geotechnics of the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering.
TERRE is coordinating a mini-symposium on Low Carbon Geotechnical Engineering at the 2nd International Conference on Energy Geotechnics (La Jolla, California, USA – September 20-23, 2020.
