The SUCCESS project addresses 4 important areas for CO2 storage in the subsurface: storage performance, sealing properties, monitoring and consequences for the marine environment. The ?CO2-School? is in addition a major educational program facilitated by the project and the 3 universities that are involved (UiB, UiO, UNIS). The selected activities, which are considered to fill important kowledge gaps or be critical elements, will involve fundamental experimental and theoretical work, analysis of samples f rom outcrops and case studies, development of mathematical models, modelling activities and testing in case study environments. We will as far as possible try to bridge gaps from details to concepts and applications, from small to large scale, and to tran sfer data and knowledge between many related fields. The SUCCESS consortium possesses strong competency in the fields of sedimentology and structural geology, fluid flow, reservoir characterization and modelling, mathematical modelling, experimental fluid flow and mineral reactions, geochemistry, geomechanics, petrophysics and marine ecology. In addition the team will cooperate internationally in research networks and with cutting edge institutions. This will, in association with intimate industry coopera tion, secure a perspective on the work that is both focussed on details, varied in solutions, and directed towards applications that will be operated by the industry.
