exploHUB Training Centre
Geofacets is a proud partner of the exploHUB training centre, a unique professional training centre located within the University of Aberdeen focused on preparing geoscientists for the challenges of hydrocarbon exploration. Through this partnership, Geofacets is providing free product access to programme trainees, adding to the state-of-the-art tools and resources already in exploHUB’s fully immersive and collaborative training environment.
exploHUB’s ‘learn by doing’ approach and goal of simulating the working environment of a small exploration team or company provides great context for the application of Geofacets.
Started in January 2011, exploHUB combines industry and academia perspectives into a unique exploration training environment to better prepare geoscientists for the challenges of discovering the Earth's remaining hydrocarbon resources. Its training program includes planning, designing and implementing exploration projects and it has relationships with and sponsorships from information providers and industry companies.
Owned by the University of Aberdeen, exploHUB is an integral part of the university’s Department of Geology and Petroleum Geology, School of Geosciences and College of Physical Sciences.
