In the framework of the Mari-Curie Innovative Training Networks project TERRE (www.terre-etn.com), the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne is proud to host an International Doctoral School dedicated to Unsaturated Soil Mechanics.

The School aims to spread knowledge about Unsaturated Soil Mechanics with lectures given by internationally renowned experts. The first part of the school will cover the fundamentals of mechanical and hydraulic behavior of unsaturated soils and introduce modern trends in experimental methods and constitutive modelling. The second part of the School will be dedicated to engineering applications involving Unsaturated Soils. A one-day guided tour of the Mont Terri Underground Research Laboratory completes the program.
