The 5th International seminar on Earthworks in Europe that will take place in Prague, Czech Republic in 2022 has for aim to promote good practice of earthworks in all kinds of civil engineering construction as well as to exchange information between professionals regarding planning, designing and constructing earth structures. New approaches and materials, construction risks, environmental aspects as well as great achievements in the field of earthworks will be discussed. This seminar follows up four previous similar events that were organised in Paris (2005), London (2009), Berlin (2012) and Madrid (2018). The seminar was originally planned for April 2021 but due to coronavirus restrictions was postponed to April 2022.
The seminar will be organised under the auspices of the Czech Road Society and Czech Chamber of Engineers.
The capital city of the Czech Republic is poetically considered as the heart of the European continent. The history is deeply rooted in every building and you can feel the cultural spirit in every step. Different architectural styles have been preserved throughout the wars and years of communist era and so the visitors may compose their own image of Prague.
We invite everyone interested in earthworks not only from Europe but also from other corners of the world to come to Prague and share their experience with others. Earthworks represent a major share of time and costs in civil engineering constructions. Billions of cubic meters of soil and rock as well as secondary and artificial materials are moved and placed in earth structures every year. Our goal is for earthworks to be conducted in high quality, quickly and in an environmentally friendly way.
