Call for proposals, Sustainable Energy Systems 2050


On the 25th of October 2010 Nordic Energy Research launched a new research call on Sustainable Energy Systems worth 100 million NOK. The aim is to develop integrated solutions between Renewables, Low-Carbon Transport and Grids & Markets. Cooperative Nordic research consortia are invited to submit pre-proposals before December 16th 2010.

The call seeks to foster excellent Nordic energy research of top international calibre. This research should result in development of knowledge and solutions supporting the transition to a sustainable energy system towards 2050. The project should have a Nordic perspective and participants from at least three Nordic countries are required.

Funding will be available in two different support schemes: Research projects where only universities and research institutions can receive funding and Industry projects where both industry/businesses, research institutions and universities can receive funding. All Research projects are required to have a minimum of 15% funding from own or external sources. For Industry projects this minimum is 40%.
