On 20 and 21 June 2018, ecorisQ organises the fifth general assembly in the Hardanger region in Norway. Members are invited to participate at a technical symposium on shallow landlides and rockfall hazard assessment on the first day. The second day, we will organise, in collaboration with the NGI, an excursion in the region. The detailed programm follows in February 2018.

 

On 16 and 17 May 2017, ecorisQ organises the 10th training course on rockfall hazard assessement using the rockfall trajectory simulation model Rockyfor3D. The course will be held in the region around Lausanne (Chexbres, Switzerland) and includes a half day field visit (Mont-Pélérin). The spoken language will be english (with partial translations in French and German). The cost of this training will be 460 Euro incl. lunch and coffee breaks for both days (excl. overnight stay; max. 20 participants - only ecorisQ members; non-members should apply for membership first). The program can be found here.

On 17 November 2016, ecorisQ organises the third general assembly in Lyon (France). We link up with the Rock Slope Stability Symposium 2016 (RSS 2016), which takes place from 15 - 17 November 2016. Members are invited to obtain latest news on the status of ecorisQ and its future activities, as well as on the new ecorisQ tool SOSlope, which allows detailed assessment of potential shallow landslide release areas and volumes, with and without the reinforcing effect of forest vegetation. The programm can be downloaded here.

The 4th international conference on Soil Bio- and Eco-engineering - "The Use of Vegetation to Improve Slope Stability" will take place from the 11th to the 14th of July 2016 in Sydney - Australia. This conference is preceeded by a workshop (9th and 10th of July 2016) on Root reinforcement - measuerements and modelling, where ecorisQ is actively involved. 

The 16th and 17th of June 2015 ecorisQ organised a training on rockfall hazard assessement using the rockfall trajectory simulation model Rockyfor3D. The training was held in Schruns(Montafon, Vorarlberg, Austria) and included a half day field visit (in Gaschurn). The program can be found here. The spoken language was German and English and the training was given by Luuk Dorren.
