EPOS-NL Annual meeting

The 2nd EPOS-NL annual meeting was held on 8 November 2022

Broadly 100 researchers and data enthusiasts attended

The free-of-charge, hybrid (in-person and online) meeting focussed on:

  • The latest developments on research at a geothermal well, being installed at Delft University of Technology
  • Research performed by Facility Access participants – who received free-of-charge access to Dutch, Earth scientific labs last year…
  • …and on how you can apply too!
  • Exciting new subsurface data that can now be accessed, and improved means to easily navigate these and other international data from a single access point


It was great to see all participants attending the meeting, and the wide interest in EPOS-NL activities.
