Geothermal Get-Together

The Geothermal Get-Together (GGT) is an initiative to bridge the emerging geothermal industry and university research, by the combination of a short seminar followed by informal discussions afterward. The GGT has contributions ranging from state of the art research to new policy to industry best practices.

Join us at the next GGT

The next geothermal get-together will take place on:

June 27th, 15.00 - 18.00
TU Delft, Faculty of Applied Sciences
