We are pleased to announce that the United Nations University Geothermal Training Programme is joining hands with the other three UNU training Programmes in Iceland to form the International Centre for Capacity Development – Sustainable Use of Natural Resources and Societal Change in Iceland that will be operational as of January 1, 2020. Further information see the news item on the changes at hand.
The Geothermal Training Programme of the United Nations University (UNU-GTP) is a postgraduate training programme, aiming at assisting developing countries in capacity building within geothermal exploration and development. The programme consists of six months annual training for practicing professionals from developing and transitional countries with significant geothermal potential. Priority is given to countries where geothermal development is under way, in order to maximize technology transfer.
The programme has operated in Iceland since 1979. It is a cooperation between the United Nations University and the Government of Iceland and is hosted by the National Energy Authority (Orkustofnun).
