The school was successfully attended by 25 Trainees from 10 Countries (Austria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Poland, Romania, Spain and Ukraine); 62% Trainees were from Academia, 27% Trainees were from Industry, and 12% Trainees were Freelance Professionals. Three Trainees were Members of TU1208 GPR Association and received a Training School Grant (waiver of the registration fee). Thank you very much to all Trainees, for attending and enjoying the school!

Lectures were given by 15 Trainers from 6 Countries (Belgium, Croatia, Italy, Serbia, United Kingdom, United States), coming from Universities, Research Centres, Companies, and a Public Agency. Many thanks to all Trainers for coming to Rome and for their outstanding contribution to the school!

Thank you to "the Helpers" Loredana Matera, Santo Prontera and Alessio Ventura, for their tireless work!

We are grateful to the co-organizing and co-funding institutions: Sapienza University of Rome, University College London, and Associazione Italiana del Georadar. We are also grateful to Geophysical Survey Systems, Inc (GSSI) and Codevintec Italiana Srl for providing cutting-edge equipment and excellent technical support during the practical sessions. Finally, we are grateful to Basilica di San Pietro in Vincoli and Basilica di San Paolo Fuori le Mura for hosting our practical sessions.

Building on the experience of 15 Training Schools organized in the framework of COST Action TU1208, in 2013-2017, this was the first Training School organized by TU1208 GPR Association. We did a great job! Lectures were interesting and regularly attended by Trainees, practical sessions were useful and in amazing locations, everything worked smoothly and the feedback that we received from Trainees was definitely positive.

The school was awarded with the EU label for the European Year of Cultural Heritage:
