    GeoConnect3d online webinar series

    It is a challenge to disclose and discuss geological information. This challenge was accepted by GeoConnect³d, one of GeoERA’s Horizon 2020 projects that brings together partners from Ireland to Ukraine. Together, we have developed a new way of presenting geological information, and are now ready to apply it to real world cases. We reach out to everyone dealing regularly with the subsurface or geology at large, since we need your feedback to shape our raw tools into utensils.

    In order to do so, the GeoConnect³d staff prepared a series of four short online sessions discussing four specific topics around our Roer-to-Rhine area of interest (crossing Belgium-France-Germany-Luxembourg-Netherlands). These are:

    1. Geoheritage & Geotourism - 22 June 2020 from 9:30 to 11am (CEST)
    2. Groundwater - 23 June 2020 from 9:30 to 11am (CEST)
    3. Geothermal energy - 24 June 2020 from 9:30 to 11am (CEST)
    4. Subsurface management - 26 June 2020 from 9:30 to 11am (CEST)

    For each topic, the event will start with a guest speaker that introduces their angle on how geology links to our lives. We then explore again the same case using the GeoConnect³d methodology. The ultimate goal is to build an intuitive understanding of the specific geological context, how the subsurface can be used, and what the constraints are. This then allows for a debate where all stakeholders, from geological experts to the general public, are able to participate on equal terms.
