The call for the next WP-D – New Frontiers in Geosciences (Geoheritage and Geothermal Energy) training is now open. This upcoming training will take place in Hoima – Lake Albert, Uganda, 24-29 June 2024 (IN ENGLISH).

This training is part of the WP-D module ‘New Frontiers in Geosciences (Geological Heritage and Geothermal Energy)’, which aims to provide theoretical and field training to assess the geothermal potential of the geological environment, both for shallow and deep geothermal.

This session is co-organised by Directorate of Geological Survey & Mines of Uganda, the Geological Survey of Poland (PGI-NRI), the Geological Survey of Slovenia (GeoZS) and the Geological Survey of Spain (IGME-CSIC).
The training programme will consist of 3 days of lectures on geothermal energy in terms of assessing the geothermal potential of rocks, the scope of field surveys and their interpretation and use. The following 3 days are dedicated to field observations and measurements in the East African Rift in the Lake Albert area.

At the end of the course, participants will be asked to come up with a ‘return-to-work plan’ to set goals for the application and implementation of the knowledge gained during the training in their organisation (e.g. analysis of the geological structure of the country in terms of the country’s geothermal potential, the potential for deep geothermal, geothermal waters, the energy balance of the country including the contribution of renewable energy sources to this balance). The PanAfGeo-2 WP-D – New Frontiers in Geosciences (Geoheritage and Geothermal Energy) training session is open to all persons who are eligible according to the conditions of the “PanAfGeo-2 Charter for Trainee”.

In order to be considered, applicants for the PanAfGeo-2 Training Session entitled WP-D – New Frontiers in Geosciences (Geoheritage and Geothermal Energy) must complete the documents listed hereafter:
