FROM NEED TO ACTION
Geo3En is an Erasmus Strategic Partnership Projects organized by a consortium of four institutions: Institut Polytechnique UniLaSalle, France (UniLaSalle), Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany (TU-Darmstadt), University of Zagreb, Croatia (UniZG), Innovation Center of Iceland , Iceland (ICI).
The Geothermal Energy European Education Network (Geo3En) has been 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 objective of Geo3En is to design an international multi-site training programme in geothermal engineering that 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. The MSc programe will be entirely taught in English.
To achieve its objectives, Geo3En launches four European stakeholder consultations to co-design this 2-year MSc programmes together with its associated partners and stakeholders of the European geothermal sector. This will ensure that the competencies acquired during the MSc will be in line with the needs of industry and research organisations.
Geo3En has seen the light as academic spin-off of the H2020 research project MEET on Enhanced Geothermal Systems (GA# 792037) which unites 16 partners from 5 different European countries (8 industrial partners, 2 applied research institutes and 6 Universities).
