DESTRESS at EGPD
The European Geothermal PhD day (EGPD) is intended to connect PhD researchers from all over Europe working in the field of geothermal energy and will celebrate its 10th anniversary at its original host institution, the German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ), Potsdam. Every year, between 50-80 young scientists from various research fields such as geology, geochemistry, rock mechanics, geophysics and mechanical engineering come together to share knowledge and experience on this promising energy resource.
Over the last decade, this venue was held in many different countries including Iceland, the Netherlands, Italy, Hungary, Switzerland and Germany. Next year’s meeting will be held from 25th - 27th of February 2019 at the Albert Einstein Science Park Telegrafenberg, Potsdam. Participants at any stage of their PhD studies who are interested in presenting their work, getting feedback from fellow PhD students or who would like to explore future directions in their research and careers are welcome to join the 10th EGPD.
The conference programme will include keynote lectures from experienced researchers and academics about recent scientific and technical developments in geothermal energy, as well as socio-economic aspects, a poster session with drinks and snacks, a conference dinner and a guided tour to the geothermal underground laboratory and power plant of Groß Schönebeck, one of DESTRESS's fall back options.
