About this event

The Ground Engineering Group are delighted to be bringing the final of the 47th edition of the Cooling Prize to Wales this March. The competition will showcase a selection of short presentations by the UK’s top young geotechnical talent. The evening’s winner will take away the prestigious Cooling Prize, and receive sponsorship to attend the European Young Geotechnical Engineers' Conference in Sibiu, Romania.

Please join us at one of Wales’s leading iconic venues to see what promises to be a fantastic set of presentations. A special guest lecture on the geotechnical design of the Wales Millennium Centre will be provided during the interlude for judging.
