5th GERG Academic Network Event, Brussels
30-31 May 2013

     
  The 5th GERG Academic Network Event took place on 30th and 31st May 2013 in Conjunction with the EGATEC 2013 conference in Paris.

22 posters were presented by 22 selected postgraduate students, who attended,
in many cases along with their supervisors. This provided them with a great opportunity to interact with over 200 industry attendees over the conference two days. They were also able to attend all conference sessions and gain insight into the issues that are currently driving the Gas Industry in Europe. As a way of bringing together industry and the new and innovative ideas of our academic community, the event was judged a great success, and many new contacts were made.

As has become a tradition, the posters were assessed by senior GERG members, and prizes awarded to the top three - or in this case four as there was a
third place tie!

1st Place
