ISSMGE NEWS & INFORMATION CIRCULAR - APRIL 2018

Please visit the ISSMGE website – https://www.issmge.org/ for full details of all ISSMGE activities. 

Please distribute this Circular widely. We are keen to receive as many responses as possible to the survey outlined in Item 1.

  1. Invitation to Participate in Survey on Innovation Initiatives of ISSMGE

On behalf of the President of ISSMGE Charles Ng and the Innovation and Development Committee (IDC), we are pleased to invite you to participate in a survey on "Innovation Initiatives of ISSMGE."

As you may know, the IDC has been working for the last eight years on a number of initiatives, and as new priorities are being set, we think your feedback will be extremely useful on the prioritization of new initiatives. We encourage you to participate in this survey and forward this message to your colleagues.

It should take no more than 8 minutes to fill in the survey. Also, a lottery will be held and a small number of participants will receive a set of geotechnical books; please include your email in your response (if you want to be eligible for the prizes). The survey will be available until April 30th.

Thank you for participating,
Dimitrios Zekkos, Chair of the Innovation and Development Committee (IDC)
