CGS Europe: Pan-European coordination action on CO2 Geological Storage
A three-year Coordination Action, CGS Europe, was launched on 1st November 2010, financed by the EC FP7 programme and representing a total budget of 2.9 M€. This project will be carried out by 24 partners (one of which, the CO2GeoNet Association, comprises 11 of its members as third parties) from 28 participant countries. Based on networking, CGS Europe will promote cooperation both:
- Internally – between the participants with true European coverage:24 EU Member States and 4 Associated Countries thus leading to capacity building between the 34 institutes involved, all with experience and references in CO2 storage research, and
- Externally - reaching out to national, European and international stakeholders and initiatives within the CCS community as well as to the general public.
