In late 2017, seven PhD students of the SFB 837 have founded a German-wide forum for junior scientists in tunneling, namely the „Forum For Young Engineering Professionals“.
The forum supports young engineers in taking the step from studies to their further career and establishes contacts within the tunneling community. The Kick-off Meeting, which was attended by nearly 100 engineers from industry and research, took place on 6th December 2017 at STUVA, an international conference for tunnels and infrastructure. The next meeting in spring 2018 will be hosted by the SFB 837.
