Three institutes are collaborating to develop the TCS for Geo-Energy Test Beds for Low Carbon Energy

British Geological Survey: The British Geological Survey, a research institute of the Natural Environment Research Council of Great Britain, is a world-leading geological survey. It focuses on public-good science for government, and research to understand earth and environmental processes.

It is the UK's premier provider of objective and authoritative geoscientific data, information and knowledge to help society to:

  • use its natural resources responsibly
  • manage environmental change
  • be resilient to environmental hazards

The BGS provides expert services and impartial advice in all areas of geoscience. Our client base is drawn from the public and private sectors both in the UK and internationally.

GFZ: Helmholtz-Centre Potsdam - German Research Centre for Geosciences

Earth System Research for our Future

The GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences is the national research centre for Earth sciences. Research at the GFZ focuses on the geosphere within the highly complex System Earth with its further subsystems, its interacting subcycles, and its wide network of cause-and-effect chains. This we do in a close interdisciplinary collaboration with the related scientific disciplines physics, mathematics, chemistry, and biology as well as with the engineering sciences disciplines of rock mechanics, engineering hydrology and seismology.

Our methodical core competences are:

  • application and development of satellite technologies and space-based measuring methods
  • operation of geodetic-geophysical monitoring networks
  • application of geophysical deep-sounding techniques for the tomography of the solid Earth
  • execution of scientific drilling
  • laboratory and in experimental techniques
  • modelling of geoprocesses

ETH Zurich: The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETHZ). Information about ETHZ's history, education, research, and libraries. ETH Zurich carries out fundamental research to broaden the knowledge base and provide the starting point for future innovative applications. The research is focused on the needs of society - be that at local, national or global level – and so makes a valuable contribution to the economy, politics and society in general. ETH Zurich main focus areas can be found on the ETH Website
