2nd Annual Consortium Meeting in Italy

Start date: September 18, 2019 - End date: September 20, 2019

From the 17th to the 20th of September, more than 60 partners involved in S4CE gathered for the 2nd Annual Consortium Meeting organised by S4CE partner UNISA in Salerno, Italy.

Results and technologies developed in the frame of the project within the last months were presented. It was also the occasion to track the roadmap for the last 12 months of the project and reinforce the common purpose and goal of the consortium. S4CE demonstrated that a lot has been done to build up a strong network. S4CE Advisory Board Members acknowledged the complexity of S4CE Consortium and the unique set of field sites represented, each at different stages of development. They also encouraged the partners and congratulated on the success to date.

S4CE came a long way and is now fully productive. It is a great demonstration of capacity building across Europe, with a large portfolio of instruments and software tools being developed. These innovations can be combined to build assets that will be used in the implementation of subsurface operations. Further, this Consortium Meeting marked the starting point of ethics discussions for sub-surface operations that we will build in and integrate with S4CE activities.

The project will continue its work and assemble what is being produced in a coherent way to increase awareness of ethical questions and formulate recommendations to society. Watch that space!
