The Upper Rhine Graben is world-renowned for its geothermal resources, which already provide renewable thermal energy. The goal of the Geothermal Master Field School is the transnational education of next-generation experts through an innovative, annual 9-day field school. Held in Northern Alsace (France), in direct vicinity to the geothermal sites in Soultz-sous-Forêts and Rittershoffen, the course will teach students to apply theoretical geoscience concepts on the evolution of a deep geothermal system from exploration to exploitation. The course thus exposes students to real-world decision-making processes related to the industrial exploitation of renewable georesources. The project is supported by Eucor – The European Campus in the “Teaching” category of the Seed Money scheme.
