DESCRAMBLE is a EU Horizon 2020 project funded within the “Low Carbon Energy” call: “Developing the next generation technologies of renewable electricity and heating/cooling”. The Institute for Applied Geophysics and Geothermal Energy, headed by JARA-ENERGY member Prof. Christoph Clauser, will accompany the drilling effort with reliable predictions of the physical quantities, like temperature, natural flow or rock properties, of the reservoir on regional and local scale.
German Federal Minister of Education and Research Johanna Wanka paid a visit to University Hospital Aachen on 28 July, making RWTH Aachen University the first stop of her summer tour. As part of her visit, minister Wanka therefore spoke in particular with the young scientists involved in the research alliance. In three separate sessions, the minister learned about current research being conducted.
