Prof. Rotta Loria has been nominated Task Force leader by the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering

Professor Alessandro Rotta Loria will serve the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering as the leader of the Task Force “Academia-Industry Partnership for Innovation in Energy Geotechnics,” initiated within the context of the Technical Committee 308 on Energy Geotechnics. In recent decades, a substantial amount of scientific research has been developed to increase the knowledge about geosystems that involve the harvesting and/or storage of energy through the ground. Increasing technical advances and applications have also been developed to foster the diffusion of the previous systems and to serve human activity needs. The previous activities, which inherently characterize the science and engineering of Energy Geotechnics, are under continuous progress and can revolutionize the fields of civil engineering, energy engineering, mechanical engineering, architecture, urban planning, and beyond. However, they are often restrained by a mutual limited access of results, discoveries and needs between academia and industry. The mission of this Task Force is to establish a prominent partnership between academia and industry to bridge the gap between the considered fields and to foster scientific discovery, engineering innovation, technology transfer, advanced professional training, financial support, and the exchange of common visions and needs in the scope of Energy Geotechnics.
