II.  Provide a supportive and inclusive network for the researchers and engineers in the field of poromechanics at any stage in their career and with diverse backgrounds;

III.  Disseminate latest research in poromechanics and its essential ideas in the form of workshops, conferences, symposia and dedicated student poster session at the EMI.
