We hope you were able to participate live on April 13, or have since watched the streams and presentations on demand in the conference platform.

The Geosciences part now to take place on May 11 and 12, 2021 is promising an exciting and extensive program of presentations related to geosciences.

The topics of next week’s sessions will be

The system to bring you the World Geothermal Congress Virtual Event Series is set up two-fold.
