The 2022 convention is entitled "Learning from the past and building the future" (Apprendre du passé et construire l'avenir). It will address a number of topics, including: the design, construction and durability of geotechnical structures, carrying out reconnaissance and verifications of sites and structures, physical and numerical modelling of sites and structures, characterisation and modelling of materials and geomaterials, risk management, sustainable construction, life-cycle analysis (LCA) of geostructures, and the teaching and transmission of expertise in geotechnics and engineering geology. The convention aims to show how it is possible to capitalise on collective experience to better appreciate and prepare for the new challenges of the future.

Over the course of three days, some 150 oral presentations will be organised as well as three plenary conferences, involving experts invited by the three committees.

The JNGG 2022 will also host a technical exhibition that will enable the sector's various players (companies, design offices, hardware and software suppliers, etc.) to promote their activities and products.
