Geotechnical Seminar

Geotechnical Seminar with the participation of leading specialist annually deals with current geotechnical subjects

We have been organizing a Geotechnical Seminar since 1998. The seminar is intended primarily for engineering and transport constructions designers, employees from investment organizations and construction companies, engineering geologists and geotechnical specialists. Leading Czech and foreign specialists annually presents current geotechnical subjects. The discussed issues are regularly shown within range of case studies from the Czech Republic and abroad.
