THE SUBSIDENCE FORUM DISSERTATION INITIATIVE 2018 - Now in its third year, the Subsidence Forum Dissertation Prize scheme offers a cash prize for the best undergraduate, final year dissertation for 2018.  The subject matter must be related to subsidence, but it does not necessarily have to be restricted to technical aspects; it may encompass wider issues, such as climate change, social and/or financial impact on communities be they rural or urban and the wider environmental implications.

The dissertation must be received by the Subsidence Forum, duly marked and externally examined, by Monday 3rd September 2018.
