This project is a blended (online and offline) multidisciplinary professional program to train future workers for the civil and infrastructure sector. Participants will gain a critical understanding of the environmental impact of classic cementitious materials used today. Experts and professionals will deepen:

  • how to select and prepare the materials and mix design;
  • how to characterize the prepared mixtures;
  • how to test their efficacy in soil stabilization applications.

Attendees will have the chance to experience all of this both in laboratory and meso-scales thanks to training periods in Italy, at our laboratory in Sapienza Università di Roma, and Denmark, at Danmarks Tekniske Universitet (DTU) one.


What are the main topics of the project?
use of innovative materials for soil improvement purposes
environmental impact quantification and reduction
enhancement of sustainable practices in engineering industry

Who is aimed at?
The program was designed for students +18 years old from vocational high school and basic knowledge of English.

Why did we design this project?
The gender gap in the world of research and engineering continues to be a particularly critical element that prevents full achievement of the maximum potential for innovation and development in organizations and companies.

The current employment level of foreigners and second-generation foreigners in the infrastructure, civil, and technical sectors inspired us to design a program to give them complete practical and theoretical background.
This program aims at inclusivity and professional training, targeting learners from underrepresented groups.


Who are the partners?


GEEG is an Innovative Italian SME that puts together the geotechnical, civil and environmental engineering world to generate a positive and concrete impact on tunnelling and large underground works.


Founded in 1303, Sapienza is the most ancient university in Roma and the largest in Europe. Its mission is to contribute to the development of knowledge society through research, excellence and quality instruction and international cooperation.


DTU is an university situated in Kongens Lyngby, northern Copenhagen. It was founded in 1829 by Hans Christian Ørsted to be the first danish polytechnic; DTU is today one of the most important european engineering institutions and the best engineering school in northern Europe.

GEEG, Sapienza Università di Roma and Danmarks Tekniske Universitet (DTU) actively promote application, appreciation, and transfer of knowledge and technologies, extending beyond traditional teaching and research roles.

Their actions span two key areas:

enhancing research through intellectual property management, academic entrepreneurship, and technology transfer;

producing public goods, managing cultural assets, ensuring health protection, and fostering public engagement. Emphasizing cultural activities, science dissemination, and citizen involvement, they leverage their expertise to contribute to contemporary society’s social, economic, and cultural development.


The collaboration with transnational partners, including GEEG, Sapienza, and DTU, offers several benefits in achieving project objectives. Firstly, it provides an opportunity to incorporate individuals from diverse societies, each characterized by distinct welfare structures. The advantages of transnational cooperation encompass various aspects:

Exchange of Best Practices: Participating organizations can share valuable insights and practices in vocational training, fostering the pooling of methodologies and experiences. This collaboration is fundamental for enhancing vocational training providers at all levels.

Cross-Cultural Learning: Participants in the training pathway can learn from trainers and experts hailing from different countries, exposing them to diverse methodologies. They can also exchange experiences, ideas, and information with peers from various countries, enriching their cultural and educational perspectives.

Contribution to European Priorities: The entities involved contribute to consolidating scientific and professional knowledge at the training level, aligning with European priorities. This is particularly crucial for processes related to environmental impact technologies, connecting to selected horizontal priorities within a European framework.
