SYSTRA at the AFTES convention in Lyon

The French Tunnelling and Underground Space Association (AFTES) is organising its 14th International Congress at Lyon’s Cité Internationale from October 13 - 15, 2014, in partnership with its Belgian, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and Swiss counterparts.

The main topic of this congress “Tunnels and Underground Space risks and opportunities” comprises four sub-themes:

  • Designing and conducting projects for tunnels and other underground works
  • Technological progress and innovations
  • New underground infrastructures
  • Managing uses of underground space.

AFTES is keen to nurture discussions between various stakeholders in the business, such as developers, owners, engineers, architects, construction firms or suppliers. Key features include a particular emphasis on underground space, its design and the key players involved,
a special initiative directed at underground professions and training for young engineers and technicians, a warm welcome for local authorities, raising their awareness of the benefits of underground structures.

SYSTRA will be present on stand 262.
