The QICS project is synergistic with a number of UK, European and International projects that explore the environmental risk assessment of CCS, CCS economics and engineering, geological formations, Ocean acidification (the marine uptake of anthropogenic atmospheric CO2 of anthropogenic origin), climate change and alternative energy strategies. The following lists some of the main projects and networks directly relevant to QICS.

UKCCSC: The UK academic network for CCS research.
RISCS: Research into impacts and safety in CO2 storage.
ECO2: Sub seabed CO2 storage: Impact on marine ecosystems.
UK Ocean Acidification research programme.
EPOCA, the European Project on Ocean Acidification.
UKERC, the UK Energy Research Centre.
UK CCS RC, the UK CCS Research Centre.
