9th European Geothermal PhD Days

In 2018, the 9th European Geothermal PhD Days will be organised mainly by the PhD students of the Geothermal Energy and Geofluids (GEG) Group at ETH Zurich. The EGPD 2018 event will take place on March, 14th-16th at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH), Switzerland.

Over the time since its inception, the annual EGPD event has come to be known among PhD students from all over Europe, as a place to present their research and in turn, understand the work being developed by their peers at other universities. The event is organized by PhD students, for PhD students, and is intended to take place in a relaxed and friendly environment. This gives attendees a chance to network with students and academics in order to create and strengthen professional relationships, as well as to practice their presentation skills in a constructive and supportive atmosphere.

The three-day event is split into oral presentations and poster sessions during the first two days and an off-campus excursion to Erdwärme Grünwald geothermal energy site on the last day. Sessions in the past have included Resource Assessments, Exploration, Reservoir Engineering and Monitoring, Tool and Code Development, Process Engineering, Sustainability Aspects, Groundwater studies, Geology and Structure Studies, Storage, Supply and Demand Matching, Thermodynamics and many more. All participants must submit an abstract and present their projects (oral presentations or posters) during the conference.

You are welcome to register and submit the abstracts for your presentation through the form on this website. You can contact us at if you should have any questions or need any assistance. We hope to see you there in March 2018!
