Funding for this programme is made available as part of the EEA and Norway Grants on the basis of the EEA Agreement 2009-2014 and the MoU between Poland and Norway signed in June 2011. In the spring of 2013 an additional allocation of 10 mill EUR was earmarked for CCS research.
The objective of the Polish-Norwegian Research Programme is enhanced research-based knowledge development in Poland through enhanced research cooperation between Poland and Norway. Collaborations established under the programme should build solid grounds for future partnerships and projects executed under the EU framework programmes (i.e. Horizon 2020).
The cooperation is to be based on equal partnerships between Norwegian and Polish research institutions, with the leading role of the latter. The programme will fund Polish-Norwegian research projects of a duration of up to 3 years in the period 2013-2017.
The programme is operated by the National Centre for Research and Development in Warsaw (NCBiR). The Research Council of Norway, as Donor Programme Partner, has an advisory role and facilitates contact with Norwegian research communities. Applications and funding will be administrated by NCBR.
Project proposals for the 2013 call should address the following areas of interest concerning Carbon Capture and Storage Processes:
Independent research institutes, universities, university colleges and research oriented SMEs that confirm to the definition of research organisation as described in the Community Framework for State Aid for Research and Development and Innovation (2006/C 323/01).
Projects have to be submitted by consortia comprising at least one Polish and one Norwegian entity.
Partners not eligible for funding (f.ex. third country partners or SMEs that are not research organisations) may take part in the consortium with their own funding.
