About WTC2023 Organization   

The ITA-AITES WTC2023 is managed by the Executive Organizing Committee which includes all elected members of the Greek Tunnelling Society and is further strengthened by experienced Academics and Industry Professionals. The Executive Organizing Committee is joined by the ITA Executive Director and communicates directly with the ITA Executive Council via both the ITA Executive Director and the assigned “ex officio” member in ITA Ex-Co.
