4th Early Career Forum – ISRM Education Fund

Tuesday, September 17th

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.
