mynd-jardhitaskoli-baeklingurThe United Nations University Geothermal Training Programme (UNU-GTP) was established in 1978 by the Government of Iceland and the United Nations University (UNU), with Orkustofnun (the National Energy Authority) as the host institution.


The mandate of the UNU-GTP is to assist developing countries with significant geothermal potential, to establish groups of specialists in geothermal exploration and development by offering six months specialized training for professionals employed in geothermal research and/or development.

The hallmark of the UNU-GTP is to give university graduates engaged in geothermal work intensive on-the-job training in their chosen fields of specialization. The trainees work side by side with geothermal professionals in Iceland. The training is tailor-made for the individual and the needs of his institution/country.
