Upstream

Nature of the resource

•    Deep roots of geothermal systems including contributions linked to ongoing projects such as GEORG DRG, IDDP, Krafla Magma Drilling and DEEPEGS.
•    Integration of volcanology and geothermal science.
•    Geology of geothermal systems and volcanoes, structural and tectonic mapping, integration of geology, geochemistry and geophysics.
•    Geophysical exploration and monitoring methods, including resistivity, seismics, deformation, potential fields and other methods.
•    Reservoir analysis and management, including the chemistry of geothermal fluids, tracers, re-injection, conceptual models and simulations.
•    Time scales of heat transfer and evolution, transients in geothermal systems.
•    New concepts in harnessing geothermal energy such as enhanced geothermal systems and offshore geothermal.

Midstream

Harnessing and production

•    Well- and wellhead design including simulation and analysis
•    Stimulation techniques for boreholes
•    Material selection and research on corrosion and erosion problems, as well as scaling issues.
•    Engineering challenges in the whole power cycle
•    Operation and maintenance of power plants and wells

Downstream

Diversified utilization

•    The Waste to Value (W2V) concept
•    Subtraction of valuable metals and chemicals from geothermal fumes
•    Treatment and utilization of geothermal gases
•    Cascade use of geothermal products, and industrial applications of power, heat and chemicals from geothermal resources
•    Food production, and drying
•    Cultivation of plants, fish and algae using geothermal waters

Cross-cutting

Sustainability – Social benefits – Innovation

•    Sustainability –  Social, economics, envirionment
•    Lifecycles of geothermal systems
•    Innovation and StartUps
•    Product development
•    Management of knowledge including intellectual property rights and patents
•    Education and training
