GEOLAB Networking Event 2023

 GEOLAB hosted its Annual Networking Event , at the premises of Radisson Blu Nydalen, Oslo, Norway on the 29th of November 2023. The Networking Event  consisted of a series of workshops delivered by GEOLAB with a specific focus on Joint Research and Innovation. Dedicated workshops were 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.

The Joint Research and Stakeholder Workshops started with introduction from Lars Andersen of Norwegian Geotechnical Institute (NGI) along with Ton Peters and Hauke Zachert from the GEOLAB Consortium. Following on from introductions, a two-part Innovation Workshop was held, the first of which focused on the challenges on critical infrastructure in Europe due to climate change, extreme weather, geo hazards, aging and increased usage. The second part of the Innovation Workshop focused on looking at the innovative solutions being developed by industry stakeholders and research institutes. The Innovation Workshop ended with a panel discussion moderated by William Hynes (KPMG FA). The aim of the panel discussion was to ensure the involvement of stakeholders from researchers, critical infrastructure owners and industrial partners to identify challenges and obstacles specific to each sector, highlighting innovation within various sectors on improving resilience in critical Infrastructure.

The ‘Stakeholder Themed Workshop on Digital Transformation’, was moderated by Professor Ioannis Anastasopoulos (ETH Zurich) who was joined by representatives from research, critical infrastructure owners and industries. The discussion centred around collaboration in developing and utilising opportunities offered by the digital transformation in critical infrastructure and identifying potential areas of cross network collaboration and advancing this collaboration and knowledge exchange.

The final session of the day was the ‘Foresight Study Session on Long Term Science and Technology Development’, which was moderated by Sam Stanier (University of Cambridge), and hosted a panel of experts from academia and industry with experience of technology transfer from research into practice. The expert group discussed the key drivers for digital transformation and how stakeholders can collaborate to facilitate this digital transformation along with future research and development directions perceived to be key for the maintenance of Europe’s critical Infrastructure from a geotechnical perspective.
