CO2 Geological Storage International Master - A.Y. 2022-23
The call for Academic Year 2022-2023 is now open and the deadline is 16th of January 2023
Sapienza University of Rome together with University of Zagreb and the participation of Heriot-Watt University of Edinburgh, Tallinn University of Technology and the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland GEUS are offering a one-year Postgraduate specialist university course (60 ECTS) on CO2 Geological Storage with the support of CO2GeoNet, the Network of Excellence on the Geological Storage of CO2.
The Master provides a comprehensive preparation for young professionals interested to work in the field of CCS. It is composed of a period of lessons (February to July), fieldwork and a period of traineeship at one of CO2GeoNet research institutes.
The Master will present an overview of state-of-the-art CCS operations and research; it will focus on the technical and scientific considerations for CO2 injection and safety monitoring, the exploration of critical processes in laboratory studies, numerical modelling, and conclusively on sound and reliable storage capacity estimates, including the project economics and planning of mitigation measures in case regulatory requirements are not fully met.
The students will be able to understand the work of the different specialists involved in CCS projects and will have the opportunity to connect with the most advanced research institutes in Europe.
