    Abstract

    Design of geotechnical systems is often challenging as it requires the understanding of complex soil behaviour and its influenceon field-scale performance of geo-structures. To advance the scientific knowledge and the technological development in geotechnicalengineering, a Scottish academic community, named Scottish Universities Geotechnics Network (SUGN), was established in 2001, composingof eight higher education institutions. The network gathers geotechnics researchers, including experimentalists as well as centrifuge,constitutive, and numerical modellers, to generate multiple synergies for building larger collaboration and wider research dissemination inand beyond Scotland. The paper will highlight the research excellence and leading work undertaken in SUGN emphasising some of thecontribution to the geotechnical research community and some of the significant research outcomes.
