EASYGO is going places
Visit us at Geothermal Research and Innovation Booth at European Geothermal Congress 2022, Berlin located in C16.
2nd EASYGO Training Week
This EASYGO Training Week took place in Aachen from 21st April until 26th April 2022. The second training week was designed with a focus on Computational Geosciences, Inversion methods, Open-Source concepts, as well as hydraulic stimulation and CO2 geothermal techniques. Apart from scientific and soft skills training, this week also provided an opportunity to all the ESRs to present the current state of their research in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The training was complemented with a fieldtrip around Aachen, which manifests several thermal springs around the city and hosts the geothermal well- RWTH-1. An important component of this training week was also that it was directly followed by the European Geothermal PhD days (EGPD), a gathering of 60 PhD students from all over Europe working in the field of geothermal energy. This year EGPD was organized by EASYGO students and hosted by RWTH Aachen University. For more news, please see the Outreach section.
EASYGO Project Lead was officially transferred to ETH Zurich after EASYGO Grant Agreement Amendment done in December 2021.
EASYGO Project check meeting with the Project Officer took place on 27.01.22 and 28.01.22. The meeting was attended by all the Project partners, supervisors, and students.
All ESRs finished the first months of their PhD studies and give an update on their research on the personal ESR pages. Students went to the field, prepared laboratory experiments, started their secondments at partner institutes and all submitted an abstract to the European Geothermal Congress 2022.
Next Training Week with EGPD 2022
The next EASYGO Training Week will take place at RWTH Aachen from 22.-27.4.2022. The Training Week will be organized jointly with the European Geothermal PhD Day 2022. Participants of EGPD 2022 will have the unique opportunity to join part of the EASYGO Training Week.
1st EASYGO Training Week
The first of four `EASYGO Training Weeks` will take place from 6-10 September 2021 on the TU Delft campus. Everybody looks forward to meeting the first time in person. We will welcome 40 people: excellent scientists from TU Delft, ETH Zürich, RWTH Aachen and Politecnico di Milano supervising our 13 EASYGO PhD students and representatives of our distinguished industry partners (this time: EBN, Geophysica, Lu-Ve, Turboden). Topics of the students training are: Introduction to geothermal energy and geochemistry during operation, geophysical monitoring techniques, scientific writing and gender bias. Additionally, the PhD students will present their work, industry partners will give an insight into their practical experience and we will visit the Huisman campus. Students interested in joining remotely should contact the project lead of EASYGO with their names and affiliations.
Next EGPD hosted by RWTH Aachen within EASYGO
The European Geothermal PhD Day 2022 will be hosted by RWTH Aachen and organized by the EASYGO PhD students. The event invites all PhD students from Europe working on geothermal research and takes place every year in another country. The 2022 EGPD will be a joint event with the EASYGO Training Week offering networking possibilities among the researchers and with industry partners.
First PhD students join the project
The first four PhD candidates joined the EASYGO project as of mid of March 2021. David Naranjo and Mahmoud Eltayieb are hosted by TU Delft. Andrea Balza Morales and Esteban Gómez Diaz will be working at RWTH Aachen. Please find details on their background in their profile on this page (LINK to ESR page).
13 excellent PhD candidates have been selected from more than 700 applicants. 5 students will join TU Delft, 5 students will work at RWTH Aachen, 2 at ETH Zürich and 1 student will work at PoliMi. The PhD candidates will join the project between March and July 2021.
Recruitment begins for 13 PhD candidates
13 PhD positions within EASYGO are open for applications until mid of December. Refer to our website and Euraxess for more details. We look for excellent, highly motivated candidates with a background in geothermal energy, geosciences or related subjects.
On November 1st, 2020 EASYGO was kicked off online. Members from all academic and industry partners met online to officially start the project. Many people could not yet meet in person and the consortium had to form mainly online. Nevertheless, everybody is very excited about the coming four years of collaborative research. The consortium will jointly host 13 PhD students.
