45 national and regional Geological Survey Organisations (GSOs) from 32 European countries have joined forces to develop an ERA-NET Co-Fund Action:

Establishing the European Geological Surveys Research Area to deliver a Geological Service for Europe (GeoERA)

The main objective of GeoERA is to contribute to the optimal use and management of the subsurface. GeoERA will fund 15 research projects that will aim to support 1) a more integrated and efficient management and 2) more responsible and publicly accepted, exploitation and use of the subsurface. The projects will cover the applied geosciences, addressing the following four themes:

Secure, clean and efficient energy are at the heart of the H2020’s Societal Challenge 3. As Europe progresses to make its transition to a reliable, sustainable and competitive energy.

The objective of the groundwater theme is to provide data, information and decision-support tools for the protection, sustainable management and improvement of groundwater resources.

Mineral Raw Materials underpin societal development and Europe’s ambition for economic growth and well-being. The European Commission recognises the importance of Raw Materials.

The geo-energy, groundwater and raw materials themes share the common objective to provide and disseminate spatial information on their respective resources.
