NeTTUN will enable groundbreaking change in the construction, management and maintenance of tunnels in pursuit of the goals of NMP.2011.4.0-2. This is to be realised via a set of focused WPs addressing key scientific and technical challenges:

We have stated in our Description of Work to the European Commission that together, the improvements enabled by this complementary work programme will dramatically enhance every aspect of the lifecycle of tunnelling: from design, to construction, and maintenance of Europe’s already very extensive tunnel legacy.


NeTTUN project results will impact the tunnelling industry by enlarging business perspectives, with productivity increase; delivering underground operations with zero impact on surroundings; answering societal needs by improving safety; and strengthening competitiveness of European industry.
