    Abstract The 38th annual session of UNU-GTP was held from April into October 2016. A record number of thirty four UNU Fellows from 15 countries in five continents completed the traditional 6-month training, thereof 14 were women. 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). UNU Fellows were trained in all eight lines of specialization: Geothermal Utilization (7 Fellows), Project Management and Finances (5), Reservoir Engineering and Borehole Geophysics (5), Chemistry of Thermal Fluids (4), Drilling Technology (4), Geothermal Geology (4), Geophysical Exploration (3), and Environmental Sciences (2). All were on fellowships from the Icelandic Government and UNU. Six UNU Fellowships were co-funded by the Kenya Electricity Generating Company (KenGen), while the six Hungarians and four Romanians were cofunded by the EES-Grants system, and one of each from Djibouti and Ethiopia by ICEIDA. One new country was added to the 6-month training repertoire with the six UNU Fellows from Hungary. Thus, during 1979-2016, 647 scientists and engineers from 60 countries have completed the annual 6-month training. Of the total, 38% have come from Africa, 35% from Asia, 14% from Latin America and the Caribbean, 12% from Central and Eastern Europe, and 1% from Oceania. The share of women grows steadily, with 141 women (22%) having attended. Over 90 professionals have received shorter training.
