More than 45 national and regional Geological Survey Organisations (GSOs) from over 30 European countries have joined forces to develop the ERA-NET COFUND action “Establishing the European Geological Surveys Research Area to deliver a Geological Service for Europe (GeoERA)”. On 17 and 18 January 2017, The GeoERA consortium, in which TNO has a leading role, organises its Kick-Off for invitees at TNO location Utrecht, Princetonlaan. The overall goal of GeoERA is to organise a Joint Call for transnational research projects and deliver project results that will contribute to the optimal use and management of the subsurface while minimizing environmental impacts and footprint for geo-energy, raw materials and groundwater challenges.
The transnational projects selected in the Joint Call will be carried out by the GeoERA GSOs who provide their own co-funding. The call has a planned budget of 30.3 M€, of which
10 M€ is allocated by the EC. Transnational research projects funded through this Joint Call should address the development of (parts of) the following deliverables:
To support Europe in its grand challenge to stimulate economic growth and recovery of resources while ensuring common welfare and a healthy and safe living environment to all its citizens, this GeoERA H2020 ERA-NET Co-Fund Action will support policy- and decision making by delivering, harmonising and integrating pan-European subsurface information and knowledge.
