Ground Improvement

- Launch of a new TC211 website – the new format of the TC website is available since January 2019:

- Participate by dedicated workshops in the international conferences inviting TC members to contribute to the knowledge and develop the addressed themes

- Promote the activities and the links with other organizations or TC’s (in particular the Deep Foundations Institute – DFI, the EFFC, the TC 102 – In situ testing and the new TC218 – Reinforced fills)

- Organize two main TC211 WORKSHOPS at the ECSMGE Reykjavik 2019 and ICSMGE Sydney 2021 based on the new principal theme “Innovations”
