Recent team events

After the long pandemic, for the first time, FluidNET members met with other university members live. We shared information with each other and exchanged ideas about future research. This was also a time reserved for 12 young ESRs to introduce themselves and their projects. We extend our deepest regards to the EU project Officer – Giuliana Donini coordinating the Midterm review. 

Also we would like to express our deep gratitude to the family of the Utrecht University who welcomed us throughout the whole process, and to Mr. Oliver Pluemper for the organization. 

During the week 7-11 February, in Barcelona, we (the ESRs of FluidNET) gathered in our first in-person meeting. We were very happy to meet our colleagues, talk with them about our projects and network with each other.

Introduction to ESR research projects: 


Weds 26th 2022 – presentations day 1 – upper crustal levels

Thu 27th 2022 – presentations day 2 –  middle and lower crustal levels

Weds 26th January 2022 – ESR international culture workshop
  • introduce the concept and significance of engaged research and the values underpinning high-quality engagement
  • support ESR upstream planning for engaged research by exploring: 
    • motivations for engagement and its relevance to their research
    • strategies for identifying ‘stakeholders’ (note inclusive definition of stakeholders);
    • strategies and methods for working with different stakeholder communities;
    • routes for engaging with stakeholders

This series of meetings will introduce the ESRs to the FluidNet coordination team and the Research, Training and Communication strategies of FluidNet. ESRs will split into teams to tackle an assignment to be delivered before the January Network meeting.
