5th European Geothermal Workshop

EGW2017 Logo


Characterization of Deep Geothermal Systems


12-13 October 2017, KIT, Karlsruhe


This workshop aims at discussing new approaches, methods or data in the fields of deep geothermal reservoirs for energy exploitation, with a strong focus on on-going research. It proposes a platform of scientific exchange, especially between PhD students and scientists. We encourage PhD students and young scientists involved in geothermal reservoir technology to present their recent research and ideas.

The EGW 2017 is a joint Horizon 2020 event of the DEEPEGS and DESTRESS projects.
