Completed in 2022, GeoERA comprised 45 national and regional Geological Survey Organisations (GSOs) from 32 European countries, that joined forces to develop activities towards delivering a Geological Service for Europe. The main objective of GeoERA was to contribute to the optimal use and management of the subsurface. GeoERA funded 15 research projects to support a more integrated and efficient management as well as a more responsible and publicly accepted, exploitation and use of the subsurface.
The projects addressed the following four themes: Geoenergy, Groundwater, Raw Materials and an Information Platform. GeoERA was a key stepping stone in the path towards the development of a sustainable Geological Service for Europe, which continues with the new GSEU project.
