The paper presents the MUSE project to academics and practitioners who have an interest in the area of unsaturated soil mechanics. The MUSE ("Mechanics of Unsaturated Soils for Engineering") project is a major research and training network funded by the European Union involving six European universities and five industrial partners. Further details can be obtained visiting the MUSE website (2005). The project started in December 2004 with a planned duration of four years. It aims at undertaking a comprehensive programme of research on unsaturated soils divided in the following four main tasks: laboratory testing, constitutive modelling, numerical analysis and application to practical problems.
