The Geothermal Training Programme of the United Nations University (UNU-GTP) was established in Iceland in 1978 when Orkustofnun became an Associated Institution of the UNU. Since 1979, a group of professional scientists and engineers from the developing and transitional countries have come to Iceland each spring to spend six months on highly specialized studies, research, and on-the-job training in geothermal science and engineering. All candidates are university graduates with practical experience in geothermal work, and hold permanent positions at energy agencies/utilities, research organizations or universities in their home countries.
