European Geothermal PhD Days (EGPD)
April 27 @ 8:00 am - April 29 @ 5:00 pm
The European Geothermal PhD Days (EGPD) is a two-day training program organised by PhD students of different universities every year. The first European Geothermal PhD-day (EGPD2010) was held at the Helmholtz Centre Potsdam GFZ – German Research Centre for Geosciences – on February 12, 2010, as an initiative of the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) joint program in geothermal energy. After 13 versions of the EGPD, more than 180 PhD students working on geothermal energy have participated. In total, participants working in 20 different European countries, and various scientific disciplines, have attended the two-day PhD-training program.
EGPD is a way to efficiently spread scientific knowledge related to geothermal energy by making an event that attracts young specialists. It emulates youth in geosciences and provides a framework to make connections in a qualitative way. It provides a dedicated and informal occasion for the PhD students to exchange with their pair and to develop their network.
