Register for 2nd GAS/HITEC Joint training course - Multiphysics and multiscale coupled processes in geomaterials

WP GAS and WP HITEC are happy to announce a second training course on Multiphysics and multiscale coupled processes in geomaterials – Focus on thermal effects and gas transfer impact on the behaviour of geomaterials

When : From August 28th to September 1st, 2023

Where: ULiege, Liege (Belgium) 

Training aims 

Geomechanics plays a significant role in the understanding of the multiphysics and multiscale processes taking place in a geological disposal facility for radioactive waste. The objective of the school is to introduce state-of-the-art understanding, concepts and methods related to thermo-hydro-mechanical coupled processes, the physical impacts of thermal loading and the mechanistic understanding of gas migration in geomaterials. Results arising from the EURAD project will be integrated to the school, and a half day will be dedicated to presentations by early career researchers. A visit to the HADES Underground Research Laboratory will be organised on the last day of the school. 

Target audience 

(early-career) researchers involved in EURAD WP GAS or HITEC; (early-career) researchers affiliated to an ALERT Geomaterials member; Members of waste management organisations and technological support organisations


Registration is free of charge. A maximum of 80 participants will be able to join the school. Priority will be given to researchers involved in EURAD and members of ALERT Geomaterials until 1 July 2023.
