NGEA Submission Results

We have some exciting news to share with all of you. Two of our students Josip Vincek (master's degree in Mining) and Ivan Vujević (graduate major Geology of Mineral Deposits, currently EMerald), as part of the international team "Flinstone", won the finals of the world competition of geo scientists NGEA (Next Generation Explorers Award), organized by the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC). The Flinstone team processed a set of mineralization data in the vicinity of Flin Flon, Saskatchewan, Canada, and presented them under the title Complex data analysis for targeting VMS mineralization in the Flin Flon domain. (

The NGEA™ Challenge competition is open to students who are currently pursuing graduate or postgraduate and doctoral geoscience scans or conducting research (at the master's or Doctorate level) at the time of applying for the competition. The aim of the competition is to process and present a set of geological-geophysical-geochemical data on the prospective deposit in the world, provided by the companies Rio Tinto, BHP, Anglo American, geological surveys from almost all continents and other sponsors. The emphasis of the competition is on diversity and innovation, so teams are encouraged to include members from different fields of study such as geology, geological engineering, mining, geophysics, geochemistry, or the like. This year's competition final is in Toronto from 4.3.-8.3.

This is actually the second year our colleagues have participated in this competition. Last year they worked on "Tellus" data with the aim of finding orogenic gold deposits in Ireland and Northern Ireland, and this year they chose the "Flin - Flon" data set that focuses on the  VMS mineralization of Saskatchewan and Manitoba province of Canada. Both years Ivan and Josip were in charge of the geological dana, 2D and 3D modeling and mine activities.

We would like to thank Professor Uroš Barudžija for recommending us for this competition and professors Ivica Pavičić and Stanko Ružičić for their immense help and advice when we needed it the most.

International master course “CO2 Geological Storage”

(Joint postgraduate specialist study of University of Rome and University of Zagreb)

Zagreb University together with Sapienza University of Rome and the participation of Heriot-Watt University of Edinburgh, Tallinn University of Technology and the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland GEUS are offering a one-year Postgraduate specialist university course (60 ECTS) on CO2 Geological Storage with the support of CO2GeoNet, the Network of Excellence on the Geological Storage of CO2.

This study is designed to provide the participants with the scientific and technical knowledge that needs to be addressed for the successful storage of CO2 in geological formations. The students of the Master will be trained on all aspects of CO2 Geological Storage, and they will be introduced to the scientific and professional community working on CO2 Geological Storage in Europe and beyond.

The call for the Academic year 2022-2023 is now open, deadline for application is moved from 16th to 31st January 2023.

The Master provides a comprehensive preparation for young professionals interested to work in the field of CCS. It is composed of a period of lessons (February to July), fieldwork and a period of traineeship at one of CO2GeoNet research institutes.

The Master will present an overview of state-of-the-art CCS operations and research; it will focus on the technical and scientific considerations for CO2 injection and safety monitoring, the exploration of critical processes in laboratory studies, numerical modelling, and conclusively on sound and reliable storage capacity estimates, including the project economics, social aspects, and planning of mitigation measures in case regulatory requirements are not fully met.

The students will be able to understand the work of the different specialists involved in CCS projects (such as reservoir engineers/geologists, sedimentologists, stratigraphers, geophysicists, structural geologists, geochemical modellers, regulators, etc.), learning from high level specialists, and connecting with the most advanced research institutes in Europe.

Candidates with Graduate level diploma (300 ECTS) in Geosciences are directly eligible, but also are the candidates with a similar diploma in Petroleum Engineering or similar (providing their curriculum is positively evaluated by the Educational-Scientific Council of the study).

Carbon dioxide Capture and Storage (CCS) is a rapidly advancing field with many interdisciplinary scientific and technical challenges that are being addressed globally. This course is provided to prepare a new generation of young professionals who want to work on these topics.

Workshop on permanent magnets

As part of the European project RECO2MAG, we organize online workshop "Green deal and circular economy challenges of rare earth-based permanent magnets (PMs) with technical aspects", which is intended for graduate and doctoral students, teachers as well as researchers and employees in industry. It will be held on Monday, December 12, 2022. The workshop is free of charge. Workshops language is English. Interested students can also register for a longer version with homework (such version will be awarded with 1 ECTS credit.
