the Young

Every one or two years, GERG hosts a competition which attempts to highlight the work currently being done by postgraduate students in the fi eld of gas research. These success stories serves to illustrate how a new generation of researchers is working hard to establish gas as a key enabler of a new decarbonised energy system.

The European Gas Research Group (GERG) offers Young Researchers’ Awards to early career European researchers who have displayed a commitment to excellence in scientific research and in creating solutions for the future of Energy.

The Young Researchers’ event promotes interaction between European Universities and Research Centres, on R&D topics related to Gas in the Energy system. The key objectives are: encourage a dialogue between industry practitioners and academia, raise awareness, and enhance cooperation between our different communities.
