GeoUS: Geothermal Energy in Special Underground Structures


GeoUS will:

  1. Transfer knowledge and build excellent research.
  2. Increase scientific excellence in thermal characterisation and mathematical modelling of heat flows and temperature fields and in measurement and control of energy flows.
  3. Improve the scientific excellence and research capacity of VSB-TUO.
  4. Increase the capacity of VSB-TUO for participation in future high-quality research activities and innovation in thermal energy in Central Europe.
  5. Increase the interaction with and between the main players in the innovation process in the Czech Republic for developing and exploiting geothermal energy.
  6. Widen the visibility of VSB-TUO as a centre of excellence for thermal energy.
  7. Engage with the public and citizens and young people on science related to thermal energy.

The results will be widely shared with the City Authority of Ostrava, the Moravian-Silesian Regional Authority and also with authorities at national level.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 856670.
