Civil Engineering Applications of Ground Penetrating Radar

COST Success Story

Activities of the four Working Groups

The scientific activities of the COST Action TU1208 are carried out within four WGs (see also the Scientific Programme page).

The effectiveness of this scheme will be checked after the first year of activities and will eventually be modified, considering the actual number of active participants in each WG and the number of new participants that join the Action.


The structure of each WG will always be kept as flexible as possible, in order to enable other participants to join the Action. All the participants, when joining the Action, are invited to provide basic information on their experience, interests, and current research projects. They are also invited to provide WGs and Projects preference. Each participant can belong to two WGs; within each WG, each participant may join an arbitrary number of projects.

Each WG is managed by a Chair and a Vice Chair. The WG meetings constitute an opportunity to present activities, results and plans for the future. Between meetings, the WG members regularly interact.


For more details about the activities and projects of the four WGs, visit the following pages:

  • Meetings, workshops, conferences
  • Training schools
  • Short-term scientific missions
  • Dissemination activities.

Join us!

There are several ways to be involved in a COST Action. For general information on how to participate, please refer to the relevant page on the COST website.

By joining the COST Action TU1208, you will have the possibility to participate to the networking activities and scientific projects carried out within the Action. You will meet several scientists working on GPR, establish new cooperations and have the possibility to build the critical mass for follow up activities in the EU FP or other competitive international programmes.

The COST Action TU1208 is active through a range of networking tools: meetings, workshops, conferences, training schools, short-term scientific missions and dissemination activities. The Action is a wide bottom-up interdiscilipnary science and technology network, open to researchers from universities, public and private research institutions, as well as to NGOs, industry and SMEs.
