This website is a free (and non profit) facility that provides lists and contacts details for all petroleum geoscience research taking place in academic institutions globally. The database will be populated from 2007-2008 for launch in Oct 2008.
It can be searched by academics trying to find out what research is currently ongoing or recently completed in other universities. Companies will also be able to find out 'which companies fund what'.
Ultimately we aim to improve the link between academia and industry through provision of such data. This is website that is under construction.
