GeoERA Cofund Call

Basic Information

The Call is set up in two stages. Stage One represent the Call for Project Ideas. Stage One is open to all interested parties, to ensure contributions from the wider stakeholders community to whom the outcomes of the transnational projects should be targeted. The result of the Call for Project Ideas provides input for the Stage Two Call text. Stage Two represents the Call for Project Proposals. Project Proposals can only be submitted by national Geological Survey Organizations, which are member of GeoERA. GeoERA is specifically designed to cover the following themes within the applied geosciences: geo-energy, groundwater, raw materials and an information platform, matching Europe’s need for pan-European geological knowledge and information.

Aim of the joint call GeoERA will contribute to the optimal use and management of the subsurface, by maximising its added value for energy, raw materials, and groundwater, while minimizing environmental impacts and footprint. GeoERA projects should address the development of (parts of) the following deliverables: ~ Interoperable and transnational data and information services on the distribution of geo-energy, groundwater and raw material resources in Europe and harmonized methods to assess those ~ Common assessment frameworks and methodologies supporting better understanding and management of the water-energy-raw materials nexus and potential impacts and risks of subsurface use ~ A geological knowledge base, existing of objective and seamless data, information and expertise to service European, national and regional policy makers, industry and other stakeholders and facilitate them in policy and decision making processes.
