National and international cooperation
CLIMIT wants to cooperate and coordinate its activities with other national and international initiatives as much as possible.
Here you’ll find an overview of the most important players who may be relevant for you to make further contact with.
FMEs with CCS initiative
Centres for Environment-friendly Energy Research (FME) work on long-term research in the fields of renewable energy, energy efficiency, CCS and social sciences. The centres have the potential for innovation and value creation. The research takes place in close collaboration between research communities, business and industry, and public administration.
- Norwegian Centre for Energy Transition Strategies (NTRANS) researches the development of environmentally-friendly energy from a social science perspective, and the interplay between technology and society. What role does the energy system play in society’s transition to zero emissions? We’re seeking the answers.
- The Norwegian CCS Research Centre (NCCS) is a centre for environmentally-friendly energy research. NCCS aims to fast-track CCS by working closely with the industry on research that addresses major barriers in making CCS happen in Norway, Europe, and the world.
Technology development and upscaling in practice
Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM) is the world’s largest and most flexible facility for upscaling, testing and improvement of CO2 capture technologies.
The European Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage Laboratory Infrastructure (ECCSEL) was established in June 2017 for the European Research Infrastructure Consortium (ERIC) – permanent, pan-European distributed research infrastructure
International CCS support schemes
CLIMIT is the Norwegian financing partner in Accelerating CCS Technologies (ACT) calls for proposals
Sixteen countries and regions are working together in ACT with the goal to finance world-class R&D innovations that can lead to safe and cost-effective CCS technology.
Clean Energy Transition Partnership (CETP) is starting in 2022 and will build on existing H2020 ERA NETs ACT is in partnership with CETP.
Horizon Europe is the EU’s research and innovation funding programme until 2027
Innovation Fund is one of the world’s largest funding programmes for demonstrating innovative low-carbon technologies.
