CO(2)GeoNet, the unique role of the European scientific body on CO2 geological storage

CO2GeoNet is a Network of Excellence on the geological storage of CO2, initiated by the EC’s 6th research framework programme in 2004 and integrating Europe’s key research institutes to create a scientific reference body dedicated to the development of CO2 geological storage as a viable option for mitigating climate change. It has gained international recognition through bodies such as CSLF and IEA-GHG. It emerges as the world’s largest integrated scientific community on this theme. In 2008, the network has been transformed into a legally registered Association, thus reinforcing its identity as a durable entity engaged for the safe and reliable deployment of CO2 geological storage. CO2GeoNet’s activities encompass joint research, training, scientific advice, and information and communication on CO2 geological storage.
