“After two successful editions of the International Course on Geotechnical and Structural Monitoring (held in Poppi, Tuscany, Italy in June 2014 and June 2015) that attracted more than 200 registrants from 34 countries and 32 partners, we’re now working hard to organise a third edition in 2016. 25 speakers have contributed to the high professional level of the past courses and we’re looking for improvements and innovation. Some new expert speakers are expected for the next edition. We plan to invite registrants to interact with us well before the start of the course, to discuss the possibility of them making presentations about new monitoring trends and about case histories and lessons learned.

After the 2015 course we had an exciting field trip to the Poggio Baldi landslide (www.landslidemonitoring.com), where 10 companies made demonstrations of their equipment. We’re exploring the possibility of another field trip combined with the 2016 course.
