Sessions will focus on state-of-the-art approaches to climate change mitigation and adaptation for engineering geologists. Instructors include Professor Mike Winter (Winter Associates Limited) and Dr Phil Renforth (Heriot-Watt University).

The CPD training can be booked during registration for an additional £100 on top of your ticket price, which includes lunch and refreshments.
