Abstract Deep understanding of localized deformation in geomaterials plays a central role in tapping geo-resources and energy, mitigating geohazards and designing built environment. Our project LOG3G seeks to advance and share the knowledge of the multiscale and multiphysics modelling of localization phenomena in geomaterials (soils and rocks), with the aim to create cutting-edge predictive models serving the communities in geophysics, geohazards, and geoengineering. We take an integrated approach by combining the diverse expertise of a multidisciplinary consortium, including geological surveys, constitutive modeling and numerical simulations, laboratory tests, and real-world applications such as CO2 storage and geo-resource/energy exploitation. LOG3G will generate lasting impact on the safety and economy in interaction with geomaterials across the disciplines. The ultimate goals are to develop better insight into the complex localization behavior of geomaterials, to provide the researchers and practitioners with the next generation predictive tools, to share and disseminate the knowledge to broad audience by secondment and training beyond the project network, and finally to contribute to the sustainable development of our society
