Feedback, Webinar, and Exhibiting at XVI ECSMGE

  Some of you have already planned to spend your holidays on a sandy beach, discovering a new culture, exploring the countryside, (remodelling your home?) or something more off the beaten track (pun intended).  Whatever your choice of adventure might be, you may find some time to learn some new skills in your downtime, […]


COGAN e-learning courses launched!

The COGAN e-learning courses are now launched, guided by feedback from the Industry Needs Survey, the COGAN partners chose the two topics to be covered by the COGAN E-Learning modules. These topics are: Setting up a geotechnical numerical model Structural elements in geotechnical numerical models   We are pleased to […]

Forthcoming COGAN E-Learning Topics 2

Guided by feedback from the Industry Needs Survey, the COGAN partners chose the two topics to be covered by the COGAN E-Learning modules later in the project. These topics will be: Setting up a geotechnical numerical model Structural elements in geotechnical numerical models These E-Learning modules will be ready at […]


Competence Tracker Topics Agreed

Thanks to the Industry Needs Survey results and fruitful discussions at the second COGAN Project meeting in Padova in January 2014, the list of modules for the Competency Tracker was agreed. For each of these, domain experts will prepare competence statements with learning references defining much of what an engineer […]
