With its focus on training, TERRE will organise four Annual Schools during the duration of the project. Network-level Schools and Workshops will also be held throughout the project. These will be open to researchers inside and external to the TERRE network, giving a valuable opportunity for TERRE partner researchers and ESRs to share their work and findings within the project. Information on the TERRE Schools and Workshops can be found below.
A TERRE ‘Mini-School’ was hosted by TERRE partner CIMNE, at UPC in Barcelona in January 2019. The topic was ‘Geotechnics with Empahasis on Applications’ and offered researchers from inside and outside the network lectures from prestigious Professors including E.E. Alonso, J. Vaunat and A. Di Mariano.
In September 2018 Durham University hosted an additional TERRE School, designed in two parts. The first ‘A Wider View of Sustainability’, provided Early Stage Researchers in the Network and outside, the opportunity to see where their research fits into a wider picture of sustainable engineering and technology, with presentations from academia and industry. As most of the ESRs were reaching the end of their planned periods of study, the second part ‘Beyond a TERRE PhD’, aimed to offer guidance on “the next step”, whether this was to stay in academia, to go into industry or to consider entrepreneurial activities.
The fourth International TERRE School ‘BioGeo 2018‘, was held in the Netherlands, hosted by the Delft University of Technology and organised by the Section of Bio Based Structures and Materials. Taking place on the 19th and 20th of April 2018, the School brought together researchers from inside and out of the TERRE network. The full School Programme details the lectures and topics covered.
TERRE’s third International School, ‘Recent Trends in the Ecocontruction of Buildings’ took place at UPPA on the 28th and 29th of September 2017. The School Programme contains more information on the content of the School, including a list of lectures and speakers.
The second TERRE School ‘Unsaturated Soil Mechanics’ was held at EPFL on the 4th-7th April2017. Full information, including the programme and a list of the lectures, can be found on the TERREUNSAT EPFL website.
The first TERRE School and Workshop ‘Fundamentals for an interdisciplinary approach to design and climate-adaptation of geo-infrastructure’ was held in Naples, hosted by the University of Naples Federico II on the 26th-27th September 2016.
