Overview

Join us for the annual networking session hosted by the British Geotechnical Association Early Career Group (BGA ECG). It’s bigger and better for its third anniversary. This event offers a unique opportunity to connect with a diverse range of professionals from both industry and academia within the geotechnical engineering field.

During the session, participants will have the chance to network and delve into discussions on the future of geotechnics, chartership progression, and the abundant opportunities present within both industry and academia. This event is proudly sponsored by A2 Studio, Atkins, Geokon, Geosyntec, and others to be confirmed.

With a diverse array of attendees, including industry experts, academic representatives, and the ICE development officer, this gathering promises a rich and dynamic exchange of insights and experiences. The event's formal proceedings will be followed by an informal networking session until close.

Attendees can enjoy a selection of drinks and nibbles as they engage in conversations throughout the evening. We are committed to creating an environment that encourages meaningful connections, idea-sharing, and professional growth.

Don't miss this exceptional opportunity to broaden your horizons, gain valuable insights, and forge connections that will shape your journey within the geotechnical engineering community. We look forward to welcoming you to this enlightening event.
