The Swedish Foundation Day 2012

This year the Swedish Foundation Day was held on the 8th of March. The day was held at Stockholm Fair in Älvsjö. Our participants are mostly men, but since this was also the International Women’s Day, we highlighted that by presenting 5 female lecturers.

For more than 30 years the Foundation Day has been an annual celebration for the Swedish geotechnical engineers. We gather contractors, consultants, entrepreneurs, suppliers, students etc. This year we had 700 participants and around 60 companies in the exhibition. We are also happy to note that over the last five years there has been an increase of people coming to the Foundation Day from Europe and the Nordic countries. It seems that international companies in the field of geotechnics have focused on this day and have seen its potential.
