On 4 December Italians rejected Matteo Renzi’s proposed constitutional reforms, leading to his resignation as Prime Minister. Roberta Damiani and Meg Russell argue that the referendum result demonstrated the perils of referendums on detailed constitutional matters and in particular of attempted second chamber reform.

Workshop for young practitioners and researchers
19 March 2013
Booking information below
Eurocode 7 has been established as the current European standard for geotechnical engineering design. The next generation of geotechnical engineers (current graduates and young researchers) will use EC7 on a regular basis. This workshop aims to encourage young geotechnical engineers to engage with the new European safety codes and design methodologies. Talks by international experts involved in the development of EC7 will be followed by presentations from designers about their experience with EC7 compliant design.
