No matter where we come from, no matter who we represent, a discussion about the idea was there. A discussion about the point of view, about the practices in the different engineering associations in Europe. This is true diversity. This is Europe.

The topic of the conference held in Sofia from 18 to 20 May was “sustainable engineering”. Not only the technical aspects of sustainable development were discussed, but also various other topics such as diversity and communication!

I, Nadia Lemssouguer, represent(ed) l’Association Femmes Ingénieurs – the French Women Engineers Association.

In the beginning, we had an opening speech given by the Bulgarian Minister of Education, a warm and meaningful speech. A Bulgarian Professor also enlightened us by his speech about the development of sustainable engineering in Europe.

Once it is open to traffic, the Rohtang Tunnel in Himlayas, India will probably be officially included in the Guinness World Records books as the longest tunnel in the world situated at an altitude of more than 3000 m above sea level.

Croatian experts on the top of the world: working experience on Himalayas

No road in the world is harmless. Ideal weather conditions, strict speed limits, and good visibility, can offer just a limited help to drivers. However, some of the roads around the world can certainly not be ranked among the brightest points of transport infrastructure. Moreover, some of them are known as the most dangerous roads in the world. The list is headed by Indian roads, especially those built in the Himalayas. To prevent accidents, Indian authorities have decided to build a tunnel through the Himalayas. The tunnel will be of much help to villages cut off from the rest of the world during wintertime, when most over-ground roads remain inoperable due to heavy snowfalls, landslides and strong winds.
