HOW WE ARE ORGANISED
Georado is founded on three pillars - Geoalliance, Geopark and Geoart - and supported by the GERADO foundation. A scientific advisory board will ensure the professional independence of the project in the future and provide the necessary advice.

The competence centre GEOALLIANCE brings together specialists from geotechnics and applied geology and ensures an intensive exchange of experience at all levels. Lecturers and students, engineers, machine and equipment manufacturers, craftsmen and trainees discover new opportunities for their professional future.
In addition to theory, the location also offers practical training. The spectrum is broad and interdisciplinary. It ranges from basic craftsmanship to scientific research. Product training, employee seminars, application demonstrations and excursions are all part of the programme.
GEOALLIANCE promotes young professionals and thus creates jobs and training positions.
A manufacturer-independent, permanent geotechnical exhibition shows how theoretical knowledge can be experienced in practice.
GEOPARK "SACHSENS MITTE"
The Geopark “Sachsens Mitte” is an independent component of GEORADO. Here, people are brought together through geology and proximity to nature.
The heart of the GEOPARK, the Tharandt Forest, has long been regarded as the "classic square mile of Saxon geology", as significant outcrops of all the main rock types from every age of the earth can be found here in the immediate vicinity. But above all, the region between Freiberg and Dresden is a place of living earth and cultural history, a local recreation oasis, a nature and landscape conservation area as well as an educational area.
Geological nature trails between porphyry fans and sandstone beds, themed hikes, expert excursions, project days and lectures - all this is part of the GEOPARK experience.
GEOART ART CONNECTS
Networks like GEORADO thrive on creative processes. The art initiative GEOART supports this approach in a targeted manner. Artists of different origins and genres work together in their own studios and present their works in exhibitions, workshops and symposia. Open access, participation and free space in art form the key pillars of the concept.
In this way, the artistic work connects all actors and visitors of the entire GEORADO project.
Large sculptures welded from thousands of steel particles, wooden sculptures made with chain saws and sandpaper, paintings in exploding colours with inspiring stories together create a special experience-focused exhibition.

Der wissenschaftliche Beirat steht uns bei der fachlichen Ausrichtung der geotechnischen Dauerausstellung begleitend zur Seite. Die Auswahl der gezeigten Systeme und Materialien erfolgt dabei stets auf dem neuesten Stand der Technik. Weiterhin wurde in den Diskussionen eine breite Palette von Schulungsmodellen erarbeitet, die vom reinen Vorlesungskonzept über praktische Übungen, zum Hands-on-Training bis hin zum Messekonzept reichen. Dies war Grundlage für den modernen veränderten Wissenstransfer.
