    Abstract The 37th annual session of the UNU-GTP was held from May to October 2016. A total of thirty UNU Fellows from fifteen countries in five continents completed the traditional six month courses. They came from Bolivia (1), China (1), Djibouti (2), Ecuador (1), El Salvador (1), Ethiopia (2), Hungary (6), Iran (1), Kenya (8), Mongolia (1), Romania (4), Rwanda (1), Tanzania (3), Uganda (1), and Vietnam (1). The UNU Fellows were trained in eight lines of specialization in 2016, in: Geothermal Utilization (7), Reservoir Engineering and Borehole Geophysics (5), Project Managing and Finances (5), Chemistry of Thermal Fluids (4), Geothermal Geology (4), Geophysical Exploration (3), Environmental Science (2), and Drilling Technology (4). They were all on fellowships from the Icelandic Government and UNU. Seven UNU Fellowships were co-funded by the Kenya Electricity Generating Company (KenGen) and Geothermal Development Company (GDC) in Kenya, the four UNU Fellowships for Philippines were co-founded by the Energy Development Corporation (EDC), the two Portuguese from the Azores were co-funded by the EES-Grants system, and one from Ethiopia was co-funded by ICEIDA. One new country was added in the 6-month training in 2015 with the first UNU Fellow from D.R. Congo. Thus, during 1979-2015, 613 scientists and engineers from 59 countries have completed the annual 6-month courses. Of these, 37% have come from countries in Africa, 36% from Asia, 15% from Latin America and the Caribbean, 11% from Central and Eastern Europe, and 1% from Oceania. Among them have been 127 women (21%). Over 90 professionals have received shorter training in Iceland (2 weeks to 4 months).
