Who should attend?

Underground constructions such as tunnels, garages, metros, mines and caverns are increasingly important parts of societal infrastructures. Enclosed spaces create challenges for emergency management, fire safety and security. This Symposium will offer an excellent opportunity for experts working with health, safety, transport, emergency management, risk, security, tunneling, design, systems, operation and research in underground spaces to exhange their experiences in an international forum.

The programme is now available!

Registration is open!
