CO2GeoNet will host an open forum on the island of San Servolo, Venice with an audience of policy-makers, public authorities, industry executives, regulators, NGOs, EC representatives, engineers and scientists attending from across Europe, Australia, Canada, Iran, Japan and the USA. The following key questions will be answered:
SERGIO PERSOGLIA, International Collaborations Director at the Istituto Nazionale di Oceanografia e di Geofisica Sperimentale, Italy and CO2GeoNet Secretary General said: "Geological storage of CO2 is maturing as a technically feasible option to reduce the emission of CO2 in the atmosphere thanks to the work of hundreds of European scientists. A wealth of knowledge has been acquired to build the foundations for the efficient and safe deployment of CO2 capture and storage within and beyond the European Union".
By integrating research from a number of different disciplines, CO2GeoNet has particularly contributed to a comprehensive CO2 storage framework. This will enable policymakers to progress towards CCS implementation. Research and development carried out by CO2GeoNet scientists provides the scientific basis to the application of the new European Directive on the Geological Storage of CO2.
ISABELLE CZERNICHOWSKI-LAURIOL, project manager at Bureau de Recherches Geologiques et Minieres, France & Network Manager of CO2GeoNet said: "The most successful result of this EC-founded Network of Excellence is the transformation of CO2GeoNet into a legal entity, a scientific association under French law. CO2GeoNet has become the European scientific authority on the geological storage of CO2, needed to accelerate the deployment of and build confidence in the full range of CO2 storage technologies".

For the first time, an interdisciplinary team from the University of Basel has succeeded in integrating artificial organelles into the cells of live zebrafish embryos. This innovative approach using artificial organelles as cellular implants offers new potential in treating a range of diseases, as the authors report in an article published in Nature Communications.
In the cells of higher organisms, organelles such as the nucleus or mitochondria perform a range of complex functions necessary for life. In the networks of...
