A new, 18 MEuro proposal was submitted to the Roadmap call for Large-Scale Research Infrastructure on 17 February 2022. The proposal for “EPOS-eNLarge” is aimed at delivering the infrastructure needed for state-of-the-art research into efficient and safe use of our subsurface, in relation to meeting the international climate goals. To that end, EPOS-eNLarge will provide the missing link needed to apply our understanding of micro-processes in the subsurface at the kilometer-scale where subsurface operations – and the effects of these – take place. It will further ensure that unique research data of the Dutch subsurface is made openly, and centrally accessible for future re-use, alongside other European data. EPOS-eNLarge is a partnership between the EPOS-NL institutes Utrecht University, TU Delft and KNMI and new partner TNO.
