This event has now ended


The 2022 YGG U32 presentation competition will likely be held as an online live Teams Event following success in recent years (TBC).

We are calling for entrants under the age of 32 (on 31st December 2022) to present on a topic dealing with the engineering behaviour of the ground. Topics can be related to a construction/design project or research.

The presentation will need to last 10 minutes and emphasise the geotechnical aspects of the work. Entrants should be prepared for 5 minutes of questions at the end.

A separate poster competition will be judged alongside the presentations and the best poster will be awarded a prize. The poster competition is open to all and does not require the entrant to be participating in the presentation competition. All submitted posters will be displayed on the YGG LinkedIn group for the remainder of the season.
