The European Large Geotechnical Institutes Platform (ELGIP) is a group of 14 European research organizations, leading in geotechnical engineering, which aims to promote internationally the profession, its network and its societal relevance. One ELGIP vision is that all transport infrastructure should aim for an optimal geotechnical design. The present paper shows the relationship between the pressing challenges on European transport infrastructures and the crucial role that geotechnical engineering plays in solving them, emphasising the need for improved knowledge and understanding of ground properties in transport infrastructure.
