The venue:

S4CE Forum is organised in collaboration with the Geological Society in the heart of London. The venue provides a good forum to discuss and disseminate research findings to various audiences be they the interested public, industry or academia.

On the 4th of November 2019, S4CE consortium hosted a dissemination event at the Geological Society, S4CE Forum. The aim was to present and discuss the state-of-the-art of geo-energy operations in Europe and in North America. We had the chance to listen to speakers from Academia, Industry and from the European Commission thanks to the participation as a keynote of a representative of the Directorate General Research & Innovation. S4CE partners CarbFix, Imperial College London, Geothermal Engineering Limited, University of Lyon and University College London. The event gathered more than 70 participants, among them the student involved in the MSc programme Global Management of Natural Resources – a great opportunity for them to envision a career in geo-energy operations thanks to a panel coming from different backgrounds related to sub-surface operations, notably geothermal operations and carbon capture and storage. The forum triggered interesting discussions from different perspectives and the future potential of geo-energy operations.
