The ECF is an initiative of the ISRM Education Fund that occurs during ISRM Regional Symposia. It has the aim of promoting the participation of outstanding regional young researchers and/or professionals of rock mechanics and rock engineering in a special formatted technical session. This time around, 10 participants were nominated by ISRM National Groups of South America.
The Forum is carefully organized, including 2 senior/renowned professionals of the area, which guides the young researchers/professionals into their life careers.
It is an exciting opportunity for those who are still starting their careers to share ideas and knowledgment with those who have a large and successful experience in the area.
Do not lose the 4th ECF! It will be placed at Araucaria Room, on September 17th, from 14:00 to 17:30h.
Check the complete program below.
