Geochemistry of Geothermal Fluids Workshop

University of Miskolc – Hungary – 26-27 October 2017

 

University of Miskolc is the largest higher educational institution in the Northern Hungarian Administrative Region. It has eight faculties, over 14 thousand students and two thousand full time academic staff. With its highly qualified academic staff, well equipped laboratories, instruments and equipment, the University is a major research centre of international scientific research and technical development. The series of research activities going on at the university comprise fundamental, applied and development research in the following fields: natural, technical and social sciences, as well as the humanities and arts.

Established in 1735 as an Academy of Mining, Metallurgy and Forestry, the university is the oldest academic institution dedicated to mining in the European Union. The Faculty of Earth Science and Engineering has more than 280 years of teaching and research experience in relation to mining. The Faculty has wide international cooperation and strong industrial partnerships. International teaching and research programs are carried out in different fields of Earth sciences including mining, minerals processing, environmental and geothermal engineering.

Sharing the knowledge and technology of geothermal energy is cruical for the further development of this resource. This workshop brings together the running geothermal projects funded by the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Commision. The aim of the workshop is to provide a glimpse to the geochemical aspects of geothermal fluids, promoting cross-fertilisation between different projects, providing a forum for the exchange of scientific knowledge and facilitating synergies between the projects.
