An EU COST Action network, SUB-URBAN, has been established to coordinate, integrate and accelerate the world-leading research into modelling the subsurface taking place in European institutions. The network will also develop a toolbox to enable subsurface knowledge to be widely disseminated.
Increasing urbanisation throughout the world challenges the sustainable development and resilience of cities. Despite this, the importance of the ground beneath cities is under-recognised and often overlooked. The main aim of the Action is to provide a long-needed contribution to greater interaction and networking, and so transform the relationship between experts who develop urban subsurface knowledge and those who can benefit most from it — urban decision makers, practitioners and the wider research community.
