The EC Scientific Officer, Jeroen Schuppers, was there to offer advice on project expectations and existing CO2- storage-based initiatives and programmes with which CGS Europe will seek collaboration.
The objective of CGS Europe is to establish a credible, independent, long-lasting and representative pan-European scientific body of expertise on CO2 geological storage. This will build on the sound nucleus of the CO2GeoNet Association, and the task will be made easier by the fact that the CGS Europe consortium includes key geoscientific institutions from the existing CO2NET EAST and ENeRG networks, as well as additional institutes from EuroGeoSurveys.
The agenda, which was built around the immediate tasks and actions to be carried out within the 5 workpackages, can be consulted here.
