About the European Geothermal Congress
The largest geothermal event in Europe
The European Geothermal Congress (EGC) is the event which brings together the entire European geothermal sector, and attracts many from outside the continent. Organised every 3 years, the congress continues the series of European geothermal events that originated under the IGA (International Geothermal Association) umbrella, the most recent of which have been EGC 2016 in Strasbourg, France; EGC 2013 in Pisa, Italy; EGC 2007 in Unterhaching (Munich), Germany; EGC 2003 in Szeged, Hungary; and EGC 1999 in Basel, Switzerland.
Since 2013, the European Geothermal Congress is organised by EGEC, the European Geothermal Energy Council (copyright n°1284839), which is the trade association for geothermal in Europe.
Not just one event
Hosting a combination of events for different stakeholders creates a unique opportunity for those working in different aspects of geothermal, whether academic, industrial or societal, to come together. EGC includes:
- A scientific conference with both oral and poster presentations
- Speakers from Industry and specialised events for business development
- An exhibition
- Training courses
- Events and presentations for and from national and European policy makers
- Networking and social events
- Side conferences for European projects.
