SHale gas Exploration and Exploitation induced Risks
The objective of the SHEER project is to develop best practices for assessing and mitigating the environmental footprint of shale gas exploration and exploitation, developing a probabilistic procedure for assessing short and long-term risks associated with groundwater contamination, air pollution and induced seismicity.
Measuring, Monitoring, Mitigating, Managing the environmental impact of shale gas
The consortium studies and evaluates potential risks and impacts of shale gas exploration and exploitation. The general objective is to develop science-based best practice recommendations for minimizing the environmental footprint of shale gas exploration and exploitation in Europe.

Furthering the Knowledge Base for Reducing the Environmental Footprint of Shale Gas Development
The objectives of FracRisk are to develop a knowledge base for understanding, preventing and mitigating the potential impact of the exploration and exploitation through frackin of significant shale gas reserves found throughout Europe, and to develop a decision support tool for risk quantification of the environmental impacts of the technology.
