discuss in person. I therefore thank the BritInn Network for funding my stay in Innsbruck." says Dr. Benjamin Cerfontaine after his research visit to Innsbruck.
Dr. Cerfontaine was hosted by Dr. Gertraud Medicus from the Unit of Geotechnical Engineering at the University of Innsbruck in July 2022. During his stay, the two researchers continued their ongoing collaboration that recently resulted in a published paper. They discussed the preparation of a poster for the ALERTGeomaterialsWorkshop, describing those results.
Dr. Cerfontaine, who is currently researchering and lecturing at the University of Southampton, gave a public guest lecture on "Centrifuge and DEM investigations into screw piles for offshore applications" on 12 July 2022. Due to Covid-19 restrictions or rather recommendations of the University of Innsbruck's rectorate, the lecture took place online. It attracted about 20 viewers, some of them from outside of Austria. The presentation was recorded and uploaded on Youtube with 56 views within a week.

BritInn was happy that the visit of Dr. Cerfontaine took place and is looking forward to hearing about new projects of the Unit of Geotechnical Engineering at the University of Innsbruck in cooperation with their collegues at the University of Southampton!
