Events | October 1, 2022 | By:

Few names in the geosynthetics industry hold as much history as Koerner and Giroud. The Geosynthetic Materials Association has named J. P. Giroud, Ph.D., the recipient of the 2022–2023 Robert M. Koerner Award and Lecture Series. This momentous occasion will create a unique opportunity for attendees at the Geosynthetics Conference 2023. 

Start making plans now to join us the morning of February 7, 2023, for “A Conversation with J. P. Giroud.” Dr. Giroud will be joining the group live from France for this unique interview-style session. Past award winners George Koerner, Ph.D.; Barry Christopher, P.E.; and Jie Han, Ph.D., will be on stage moderating the session and asking your questions. Attendees will be given an opportunity to submit their questions for the geosynthetics legend prior to the event.
