Welcome to the UCL European Institute, UCL's hub for research, collaboration and information on Europe and the European Union.
Juncker’s nomination was not a sudden, not an unexpected and not even a distinct event. Neither does it spell
an end to the European Council’s dominance in constitutional politics or
make EU reform less likely.

As a closer look at the European
Parliament Elections in Central and Eastern Europe suggests, it may be
non-voting, rather than populist protest voting, which could prove the
long-term threat to sustainability of the EU’s troubled democratic

Despite “shocks” & “earthquakes” that took place at the national
level, the European Parliament remains mainly pro-EU. Why did the rise of Eurosceptics not make more of an impact, and what do the results mean for the 8th European Parliament?

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.
- Professor Brian Simpson, Arup Fellow, a principal of Arup Geotechnics & an Honorary Professor, University of Nottingham, UK
- Professor Helmut F. Schweiger, Head of the Computational Geotechnics Group at the Institute for Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering, Graz University of Technology, Austria
- Professor Giuseppe Scarpelli, Professor of Geotechnical Engineering at the University of Ancona, Italy and national representative at the European committee for Eurocode 7 on geotechnical design
- Professor Christos Vrettos, Professor of Soil Mechanics and Foundation Engineering at the Technical University of Kaiserslautern, Germany
Registration for the event is free, however we require a confirmation of attendance for catering purposes. Please send an email to email@example.com to register.
The workshop is supported by Ove Arup & Partners and UCL European Institute. Georgios Katsigiannis, as a member of the Geomechanics and Materials Group, being awarded the Junior Researcher 2012-13 Grant, ensured funding for the organisation of the event.
