The Platform

GeoWorld is an international professional network for geoengineering and was jointly created in 2011 by the International Society for Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE) and ARGO-E GROUP.

It is an online networking platform functioning as a mean of communication for geotecnical engineers and associated fields.

Our Mission is to create a professional networking tool where everyone involved in the broad field of geoengineering will have the opportunity to benefit from the continuous and interactive communication among colleagues, companies and professional organizations in the field.
Our Vision for GeoWorld is that it will revolutionize the way information is circulated and even generated in the geoengineering field. It will serve as a Platform to promote professional interactions, foster the formation of formal and informal groups, and support innovation in the geoengineering field at a global scale.
ISSMGE and ARGO-E have created a user-friendly platform where you can share your professional information, identify and connect with colleagues, link to technical committees and professional organizations, become associated with companies and form groups to support your professional activities. All at no cost. In addition to all your technical information, you can also update your status or comment on other user’s status, participate to surveys, engage in discussions, ask a question, upload or download videos, photos or files.
