We are happy to announce that the Laboratory of Soil Mechanics at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology of Lausanne (EPFL) has joined SCAUT as an associate member.

The Laboratory of Soil Mechanics (LMS) is one of the laboratories within the School of Architecture, Civil and Environmental Engineering of EPFL. Besides the conventional geomechanical research activities, the group headed by Prof. Lyesse Laloui gives priority to the protection of environment, landforms and structures from geo-hazards and industrial damage. Current research topics include energy geostructures, soil bio improvement, CO2-storage, shale gas extraction and nuclear waste storage.

During a meeting at the EPFL campus in March 2020, several cooperation opportunities were identified. A first joint approach will focus on including the concept of energy geostructures in SCAUT's underground data center project 'Edge Computing – Underground!'
