FluidNET is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie ITN project – started January 1st 2021

Fluids driving the evolution of the continental crust: influence of pathway networks, fluxes, and time scales.


     FluidNET International Conference19-21 March 2024 in Heraklion, Crete

Pre-registration and abstract submission

The conference will cover topics related to fluids in the Earth: from the nanoscale to deep crustal metamorphism. The organisers welcome contributions from researchers interested in these important topics, including environmental issues and potential remediation strategies.

The conference will be held in the Aquila Atlantis Hotel, Heraklion, Crete over 3 full days, Tuesday – Thursday 19-21 March 2024 with a field trip on Friday 22 March 2024. 

Registration fee = 120 euro


More information will be posted on our conference page and our social media regarding our programme, abstract submission, travel grants for 10 young scientists, (pre-) registration and fee payment, accommodation options.


Fluids, and in particular water, next to the solid components represent a key component in the Earth continental crust because water can act as a solvent, a catalyst enhancing chemical reactions, a transport medium for mass transport, and it controls the strength of rocks. FluidNET’s approach will focus on tracking down the sources and pathways of fluids in the crust and will attempt to measure the timescales over which fluids are mobile in the crust.



Characteristic of MSCA-ITN research and training is the strong interaction between projects and extensive opportunities for secondments by network partners. The network offers a comprehensive program of scientific and skills training opportunities, fieldwork and a summer school on location in the Pyrenees.
