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 ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.
To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...
For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.
Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...
Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.
A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...
Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.
"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.
Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
