The Congress is taking place in May, from Sunday 27th until Wednesday 30th
Maccaferri’s Spanish subsidiary Bianchini Ingeniero will be silver sponsor in the 16th Geotechnical National Congress and the 6th Luso-Spanish Conferences that will take place next month in Ponta Delgada, Açores (Portugal). The event is organized by the Regional Civil Engineering Laboratory, together with the Government of Azores, the Portuguese Society of Geotechnics and the Spanish Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering Society.
At present, there are 218 entities registered and 30 sponsors are due to support the sessions. The conferences will be attended by the main construction companies, designers and material distributors.
Under the generic title of “Geotechnics, Natural Risks and Sustainability”, the Congress will guarantee a scientific and technological dissemination of the State of Geotechnics in Portugal, Spain and Brazil. The participants will also have the privilege of direct contact with the specific geological and geotechnical realities of this volcanic region in the middle of the Atlantic.
The organizing committee is also setting up some Technical Visits and proposes that the participants apply for the visits that best fit with their interests.
