Program

Congress program of GeoTHERM 2023

Two parallel congresses on shallow and deep geothermal energy offer you concentrated expertise, insight into current developments and the latest field reports. Competent partners from politics, science and economy support the GeoTHERM actively and are guarantors for an ambitious congress program.

Below you will find the complete congress program of GeoTHERM 2023 divided by days and congresses.

The lectures will be simultaneously translated German - English - a special visitor service of Messe Offenburg.
