During the ITA general Assembly in Iguassu, the ITA Young members Group has been officially created inside ITA.
The objectives of the group is to be a technical network platform, to bridge the gap between generations, to improve awareness of the tunnelling industry to new generations, to provide young professionals with a voice inside ITA and to pass the aims and ideals of ITA.
In a few months we can see that already some of these objectives have been developed. Twelve ITA member nations have now a Young Members group and 3 are in the process to creating one. The group is preparing a number of actions for WTC 2015, but has already participated in some ones. For example the Young member Group of the Greek Tunnelling Society organized on Sunday September 27th, at the occasion of the 2nd East European Conference, a "carreer day" in which over 80 Young professionals could meet with some 10 companies.
