FROM NEED TO ACTION
The Geothermal Energy European Education Network (Geo3En) was an Erasmus+ Strategic Partnership Project organized by a consortium of four institutions:
- Institut Polytechnique UniLaSalle, France (UniLaSalle)
- Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany (TU-Darmstadt)
- University of Zagreb, Croatia (UniZG)
- Reykjavik University, Iceland (RU)
Geo3En was mandated by 20 associated partners from industry and research in the field of geothermal energy in Europe to remedy the lack of qualified junior graduates which master all elements of the geothermal energy value chain.
The Geo3En consortium designed an international multi-site Master programme in geothermal engineering entirely taught in English. The Geo3En Master programme will provide students with competencies in geology, material sciences, mechanical engineering, power system management, modelling, energy economics but also project management, entrepreneurship and intercultural awareness to successfully lead and design complex geothermal energy projects.
In order to meet the needs of the industry and research organisations, Geo3En Master programme has been co-designed with its associated partners and stakeholders from the European geothermal sector.
Geo3En was an academic spin-off of the H2020 research project MEET on Enhanced Geothermal Systems (GA# 792037).
The MEET project unites 16 partners from 5 different European countries:
- 8 industrial partners,
- 2 applied research institutes,
- and 6 Universities.
