GeoTwinn

 

The consortium of three geoscience research institutes Croatian Geological Survey (HGI-CGS), the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) and the British Geological Survey of the United Kingdom Research and Innovation (BGS-UKRI)) won the grant for Horizon 2020 Twinning project. The major aim of the project is to significantly strengthen HGI-CGS’s research potential and capability. HGI-CGS will benefit from a range of research tools, technologies, software and methods at the disposal of GEUS and BGS-UKRI. The project will also develop active collaboration and partnership between people; involving talented scientists within HGI-CGS and highly productive scientists within GEUS and BGS-UKRI, who in a number of cases are world-leading experts in their field. Two-way scientific exchanges and training programmes, will support HGI-CGS to strengthen research in four important geoscience subject areas, which are at the core of most world-leading geological surveys and geological research institutes: (1) 3D geological surveying and modelling; (2) advanced groundwater flow and contaminant transport modelling; (3) geological hazards; (4) geothermal energy.

U suradnji s dvije vodeće geološke istraživačke institucije, Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) i British Geological Survey of the United Kingdom Research and Innovation (BGS-UKRI), Hrvatski geološki institut (HGI) je dobio Horizon 2020 Twinning projekt. Osnovni cilj ovog projekta je značajno osnaživanje istraživačkog potencijala i sposobnosti HGI-a. Provođenje projekta omogućiti će znanstvenicima hrvatskog geološkog instituta usvajanje i korištenje najnaprednijih i inovativnih alata, tehnologija, programskih paketa i metoda s kojima raspolažu GEUS i BGS-UKRI. Projektom će se također razviti suradnja i partnerstvo HGI znanstvenika sa svjetski/europski vodećim i vrlo produktivnim znanstvenicima GEUS i BGS-UKRI. Dvosmjerne razmjene znanstvenika i edukacijski program će omogućiti HGI-u znanstveni napredak i osnaživanje u četiri važna geološka područja: (1) 3D geološka istraživanja i modeliranja; (2) napredno modeliranje podzemnog toka i transporta zagađivača; (3) geološki hazardi; (4) geotermalna energija.
