LARAM is an International School on "LAndslide Risk Assessment and Mitigation" of the Geotechnical Engineering Group (GEG) of the University of Salerno.

The 2-week long school for PhD students and young doctors is the main yearly initiative of LARAM.
For each edition of the school, 40 PhD students are selected to attend the residential courses, selected among applicants working in civil engineering, environmental engineering, engineering geology or related fields. The School can be also attended by some Young Doctors who defended their PhD thesis in the previous 5 years.
The courses include formal lessons, tutorials and field training.

LARAM School 2020 - teaching on line this time - (NEW)

Covid19 outbreak is a global threat and, first of all, we hope that you and your families are fine. The LARAM team is fine and we hope to meet students and lecturers again in person as soon as possible.


For the time being, also this year the LARAM School will not loose the occasion to teach and be together with the students. We will simply do in a different way.


Compared to traditional LARAM School Editions, we will keep:

i) the international application call,

ii) the selection among applicants,

iii) final certificate of attendance to the students.


Interactive participation of the students is, as usual, MANDATORY, otherwise the attendance certificate will not be issued at the end of the School.


The Application call will be opened soon (in April).

Details will be provided soon.


Best regards,

Leonardo, Michele and Sabatino
