ENabling Onshore CO2 Storage in Europe (ENOS)

Start date: Sep 1, 2016, End date: Aug 31, 2020,

To meet the ambitious EC target of an 80% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS) needs to move rapidly towards full scale implementation with geological storage solutions both on and offshore. Onshore storage offers increased flexibility and reduced infrastructure and monitoring costs. Enabling onshore storage will support management of decarbonisation strateg ...

The ProSUM project will establish a European network of expertise on secondary sources of critical raw materials (CRMs), vital to today’s high-tech society. ProSUM directly supports the European Innovation Partnership (EIP) on Raw Materials and its Strategic Implementation Plan calling for the creation of a European raw materials knowledge base. Data on primary and secondary raw materials are avai ...

The accelerated development of shale gas is accompanied by growing public concern regarding the safety of shale gas extraction and its impact on human health and the environment. For the US, shale gas exploitation proved very successful in changing the energy landscape in terms of security of domestic supply and increased contribution of gas in the energy mix. For Europe, shale gas exploitation co ...

Effects of soil alteration on nitrogen and carbon cycling (SLAvONIC)

Start date: Aug 1, 2013, End date: Jul 31, 2017,

Many forest ecosystems in Europe and North America have suffered from soil acidification and ecosystem eutrophication as a result of anthropogenic emissions of SO2, NOx and NH3. Sulphur (S) and nitrogen (N) deposition are important drivers of the terrestrial carbon (C) and N cycling. While most recent research has focused on the impacts of N deposition on C cycling, there is evidence that acidific ...

Soil Transformations in European Catchments (SOILTREC)

Start date: Dec 1, 2009, End date: Nov 30, 2014,

SoilTrEC proposes to develop an integrated model of soil processes that describes key soil functions. These functions are defined in the EC Soil Thematic Strategy as essential ecosystem services for the well-being and economic success of the EU. The key science advances are to develop, from first-principles, computational models that integrate soil erosion, solute transport, carbon dynamics and fo ...

Enabling access to geological information in support of GMES (PANGEO)

Start date: Feb 1, 2011, End date: Jan 31, 2014,

PanGeo is a service proposed in response to FP7 GMES Downstream Call 3 (released July 2009). The objective of PanGeo is to enable free and open access to geohazard information in support of GMES. This will be achieved by the generation of a validated Geohazard Data Layer supported by a Geohazard Summary for 52 of the largest towns listed in the GMES Land Theme’s Urban Atlas involving all 27 coun ...

Pan-European coordination action on CO2 Geological Storage (CGS EUROPE)

Start date: Nov 1, 2010, End date: Oct 31, 2013,

The EU has made significant progress in CCS as a bridging technology for combating climate change, but this must now accelerate and be spread evenly throughout EU Member States and Associated Countries. In this context, CO2GeoNet, CO2NET EAST and ENeRG are joining forces, pooling their expertise and building on their Networking experience to form CGS Europe, a unique concerted European reference p ...

African-European Georesources Observation System (AEGOS)

Start date: Dec 1, 2008, End date: Nov 30, 2011,

Africa, the largest single component of the African Caribbean Pacific (ACP) Group of States, despite its huge potential for development through both human and georesources, suffers in many places from poverty and underdevelopment. The sustainable use of its resources is a key issue, not only for development of the African countries, but also for the world’s future. Over the coming decades, these i ...

We propose to organise a series of workshops that will coordinate a fragmented European community that undertakes soil research so that we can fully understand what policy needs to be developed for the sustainability of European soils. Our results will directly feed into a FP7 application on the soil life cycle. Our vision is to develop integrated and quantitative models that describe the linkage ...
