Event description

Description

GeoERA would like to invite you to the Kick-off Meeting of the GeoERA projects. This event marks the start of the Project Implementation phase of the GeoERA ERA-NET, in which the 15 projects selected for financing from the Joint Call will run for the coming 3 years. These transnational research projects will deliver results that will contribute to sustainable subsurface management in Europe and will disseminate their results through the GeoERA Information Platform to reach the outside world and support policy and decision-makers.

The event consists of two parts. The first part is a Public Session for all interested stakeholders of GeoERA, which will take place on the 3rd of July. The second part of the event, on the 4th and 5th of July, is being designed by the GeoERA Theme Coordinators and Project Leads for GeoERA members only.
