Digital Environmental Geosciences

The University of Orléans is pleased to invite you to our brand new Blended Intensive Program Digital Environmental Geosciences with the theme of “WEMP”.

Simulation work in the field of environmental geosciences has become essential, both in research and in the industry world.

Thus, the kick-off meeting in Orléans intends to introduce the basic principles of four simulation techniques widely used in environmental geosciences:

Geographic Information Systems (GIS), Digital Rock Physics and Microfluidics (DRP & MF), Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), and Reactive Transport Modeling (RTM).

Applications of these techniques in real-world systems will be presented during morning seminars by international experts from academia and industry.

Students will choose a combination of two of these techniques for follow-up hands-on afternoon sessions, which will be complemented by group projects mentored online by recognized local experts.

Who: Master and Ph.D. students from Erasmus+ Higher Education Institutions studying IT, geology, engineering, fluid mechanics, geography, or physics.

Locations: Most activities will be based at Hotel Dupanloup (Orléans city center) which hosts Le STUDIUM – Loire Valley Institute for Advanced Studies.

But not only: Intercultural activities will be held in the city of Orléans and in our beautiful region. You will be able to enjoy the history of our beautiful city and learn through fun treasure hunt activities.
