CGS is participating in CGS Europe – the Pan-European coordination action on CO2 storage
March 4, 2011
Geological storage of carbon dioxide is the focus of CGS Europe - a new three-year project under the 7th Framework Programme of the European Community for research, technological development and demonstration activities. The project is based on networking among 34 research institutes, all with CO2 storage research experience, and offers a wide European coverage across 24 EU Member States and 4 Associated Countries. 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.
Czech Geological Survey is one of project leaders – we are responsible for the ‘Knowledge dissemination’ workpackage, and, in the person of Dr Hladik, we are represented in the Management Board of the project. In this way, our institution continues its activities focused on awareness raising and knowledge transfer in the area of CCS (CO2 capture and storage), started within the previous CO2NET EAST project, which we coordinated.
