NEWSLETTER N°12 – April 2021


At a time when the use of underground space has become crucial for the sustainable development of our cities, and when new technologies are resulting in far-reaching changes to all professions, our Congress wishes to be an opportunity for decision-makers, infrastructure managers, designers, builders and suppliers to share their experiences and projects involving underground space.

AFTES has selected 142 papers around the following themes:

  • The contribution of underground space in the city of the future
  • Changes in the design of underground spaces and structures
  • Innovation in building underground structures
  • The operation and maintenance of underground works serving sustainable development
  • Extensions of urban metro networks
  • Focus: European megaprojects
