The Federation of International Geo-Engineering Societies (FedIGS) is a collaborative forum within which learned societies or associations involved in engineering with, on, or in geo-materials can meet and interact. The purpose of the Federation is to facilitate interaction among the member societies, explore opportunities to promote their common interests and provide a unified response to common issues through effective collective actions that are more effective than individual responses of the members.

The members of the federation are:

  • International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (ISSMGE)
  • International Society for Rock Mechanics and Rock Engineering (ISRM)
  • International Association of Engineering Geology (IAEG)
  • International Geosynthetics Society (IGS)
