The 12th European Geothermal PhD Day will be taking place virtually February 15-16, 2021 - Don't miss the deadline for abstract submission of Nov 30, 2020. In addition a Geothermal Winter School will be held February 16-19, 2021.

CY Cergy Paris University (CYU, France) and the University of Neuchâtel (UniNE, Switzerland) are pleased to co-organise this year the 12th edition of the European Geothermal PhD Days (EGPD), which will take place virtually on 15-16th February 2021.

The theme of these days will be: Geothermics in a critically stressed crust

They will be divided into four sessions in which European PhD students are invited to register by sending their abstracts in order to present a poster:

  • Session 1: Reservoir geomechanics and reservoir management.
  • Session 2: Earthquake mechanics.
  • Session 3: Faults characteristics and properties.
  • Session 4: Modelling of geothermal processes.

Then, PhD students will have the possibility to know more about practical geothermal applications during half a day (in common with MEET Geothermal Winter School 2021):

  • Session demosites and applied geothermal case studies
  • Virtual site visits

The deadline for abstracts submission is 30th November 2020 and the deadline for registration is 31st December 2020.

All necessary information is available on the website: https://web.u-cergy.fr/egpd2021/.

We therefore invite all PhD students from European universities, research institutions/geological services, whose research subjects relate to this scientific theme to participate in EGPD 2021.

In addition, in the framework of the European project H2020 “MEET”, the rest of the week (16-19th February 2021) will be dedicated to the Geothermal Winter School 2021 opened to European students in geothermal (Master and PhD) and oriented towards the three main MEET project objectives:

  • deep geothermal systems in various geological settings,
  • increase heat production from existing plants and oil wells,
  • mapping best locations for future installations in Europe.

Find further details on the Geothermal Winter School here (pdf).

A demosites session and virtual site visits will be broadcasted on 16th February (in common with EGPD 2021), then an introductory lecture for general public will initiate the core of the school on 17th February, and the three thematic sessions will follow from 17thto 19th February.
Young researchers will have the opportunity to present their research work during dedicated oral sessions.
