Why you should join the research network Geothermal-DHC: 

Our research network on the inclusion of geothermal energy into heating and cooling grids is open for your ideas, experiences and knowledge.

There are various ways to contribute to Geothermal-DHC:

  • Be a member of the Management Committee in case your country has not joined yet
  • Contribute to our interdisciplinary Working Groups and lead an AdHoc Working Group
  • Follow our Action as an Action Observer

In turn, Geothermal-DHC offers you:

  • A pan European platform to exchange your ideas and cooperate in geothermal heating and cooling grids
  • The possibility to get connected, create joint initiatives and help to raise the impact of geothermal heating and cooling grids in your region and Europe
  • Access to the knowledge hub created in our network and benefit from a technological transfer from experienced to juvenile markets across Europe
  • Access for young researchers to our training and networking tools  such as Short Term Scientific Missions or Training Schools
  • Supportive instruments provided by COST for researchers from less research-intensive countries to gain better access to European knowledge hubs (e.g. Inclusiveness Target Countries conference grant support)

A few simple steps to join the network

  • Step 1: read the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to see if the objectives of Geothermal-DHC match your interests and expertise and make yourself familiar with the general rules of COST at the COST Vademecum
  • Step 2: Register to the Yellow Pages of Geothermal-DHC to share your background and interests with the network. The YellowPages are now found in the Private Area on the Website here
  • Step 3: Register at e-COST (Registration link) in case you do not have a profile yet
  • Step 4: Inform the Action Office (CA18219(at) about your e-COST user name and the aimed position and role inside the network
In case you would like to just follow our Action and be regularly informed about our activities, outcomes and events there you can either subscribe to our newsletter (at the bottom of the landing page) or you can use our private area via your registration to the YellowPages (see Step 2 above)

Please note: Joining a COST Action as Management Committee member is possible until the end of its 3rd year, i.e. 15th of October 2022.
