CO2NET EAST is a project funded by the European Commission under the 6 Framework Programme (6FP) aiming to involve the new EU Member States and Associate Candidate Countries in the current European CO2 capture and storage (CSS) networking activities, focusing on the Carbon Dioxide Knowledge Transfer Network (CO2NET). CO2NET EAST has provided membership support to new CO2NET initiatives, raising the general awareness of CSS technologies in the new Member States.
