Academic Year 2019-2020 - International Master on CO2 Geological Storage

Società Geologica Italiana

Sapienza and Zagreb Universities

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is a rapidly advancing technology that contribute to the reduction of CO2 in the atmosphere, with many interdisciplinary scientific and technical challenges that are being addressed globally.
The international Master Course on CO2 Geological Storage (code 30219) is provided within the EU project ENOS (Enabling Onshore CO2 Storage in Europe) ( to prepare a new generation of young people who want to work on these topics and to develop a solid professionalism in the field of geological storage of CO2.

The call for the Academic Year 2019-2020 is now open, and the deadline is the 15th of January 2020.

The course lasts one academic year (January 2020 – October 2020) and is hosted by the Sapienza University of Rome (Italy) and the University of Zagreb (Croatia), with the participation of several European research institutions: GEUS (Denmark), Heriot Watt University (Scotland), University of Nottingham (England), Sotacarbo (Italy), Taltech University (Estonian), NORCE (Norway).

The goal of the course is to provide the participants (geoscience and geoscience-related graduates) with the scientific and technical knowledge that needs to be addressed for the successful storage of CO2 into geological formations.

The program covers all aspects of the geological storage of CO2 so that the students can both understand the work of all specialists who will be involved in CCS projects (such as reservoir engineers/geologists, sedimentologists, stratigraphers, geophysicists, structural geologists, geochemical modelers, regulators, etc.) and further develop their own field of specialization.
