The 12th “International Conference on Geosynthetics” (ICG), with the motto “Geosynthetics: leading the way to a resilient planet”, will take place from September 17 to 21, 2023 at the extraordinary Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome.

„Leading the way to a resilient planet“

The geosynthetics industry’s focus on sustainability has spawned numerous innovative applications over the past two decades. The new keyword is now “resilience” and in the geosynthetics industry this means the ability to overcome the effects of natural events. The 12th ICG in Rome is seen as a starting point for the next step and, with the promising conference theme of “Leading the way to a resilient planet”, it will allow the technical and scientific exchange of information between academics, experts, manufacturers and students.

The conference theme highlights the global significance of the geosynthetics industry: our pioneering solutions consistently combine up-to-date scientific principles, practical know-how and experience and are already making a decisive contribution to the resilience of our planet.
