ICDP Australia Workshop

Australia has just joined ICDP! Join us to kick-start Australia’s participation in the International Continental Scientific Drilling Program!

Joining ICDP

ICDP membership connects Australian and international scientists to terrestrial drilling capability and logistical support as well as open new possibilities for local projects and international collaborations.

Join us for the workshop!

At this workshop, hosted by the University of Adelaide, you’ll find out more about the capabilities, infrastructure and opportunities provided by ICDP membership. There will also be a chance to discuss future project ideas.

We’re thrilled to have ICDP Executive Director, Prof. Marco Bohnhoff  participating.

Anyone interested in drilling-based projects under the umbrella of ICDP’s primary science themes – Geodynamic processes, Geohazards, Georesources & Environmental change – is invited to attend. If you already have ideas for topics to discuss, please get in touch.

On the agenda

We have a great range of science talks planned, plus sessions introducing ICDP. Take a look at the detailed program and speakers.


You can attend the Workshop online, or in person in Adelaide at the Adelaide Zoo.


The Workshop runs from 8:30am – 6:30pm on June 13 and 14, 2024.
Virtual attendance will be from 9am – 5pm.
