The aim of the Federation of International Geo-engineering Societies (FedIGS) is to enhance cooperation between international geo-engineering societies. The three founding sister societies are ISSMGE (International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering), IAEG (International Association for Engineering Geology) and ISRM (International Society for Rock Mechanics). More recently IGS (The International Geosynthetics Society) joined the group and others are being invited to join.
Currently, there are three Joint Technical Committees:
JTC1 - Natural Slopes and Landslides
JTC2 - Representation of Geo-Engineering Data
JTC3 - Education and Training
