Structural Geology @ KIT Applied Geosciences

The growing world population and global welfare, energy transition, mobility transition and climate change require new concepts of susainable energy- and raw material supply as well as resilient supply chains. The chair of Structural Geology headed by Christoph Hilgers improves models on mechanical and chemical rock properties to better predict hetergeneties of reservoirs and storage sites in the subsurface. We analyze processes and techno-economical utilization concepts for energy and mineral resources to identify strategic alternatives. Our innovations contribute to the efficient exploration and use of renewable energy, hydrocarbons, raw materials and subsurface storage.

Chris is committee member at EAGE GET conference

We are happy to announce EAGE 's first conference on Energy Transition, in Strassbourg, France. We are happy to receive you abstracts on Geothermal, Energy Storage, CO2 Storage and Cross Use & Synergies and Solutions, Society & Government, with Chris being a committee member. Abstract deadline is August 15th 2020. Further Information can be obtained here.

Structural Geology homepage launched

Right on time for the KIT-wide relaunch date, we are happy to announce the succesful launch of the stand-alone Structural Geology homepage. Welcome!

Congratulations to Gubkin University 90th anniversary

It is with great pleasure to see Gukin University, Moscow, celebrating its 90th anniversary. It successfully addresses today's and future needs with its excellent and hands-on research being tied up with industrial partners. We, your partners at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, highly appreciate our partnership and friendship. We wish you ongoing success and look forward to further tie up our collaboration.
