This workshop aims at discussing new approaches, methods or data in the fields of deep geothermal reservoir exploration, characterization and 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 development to present their recent research and ideas.

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