Deadline Announcement
The programme does not contain active announcements


A list with the project titles of all applications under processing will be published on the Research Council website.

In connection with the application review, the project summary may be forwarded to potential referees when asking whether they can assess the grant application. The project title and project summary should therefore not disclose sensitive information.

Grant proposals will be assessed by independent, impartial and qualified referees. The referees will have access to the entire content of the grant application.


The focus of the CLIMIT programme is on technology related to carbon capture and storage (CCS). The programme is administered jointly by the Research Council and Gassnova, and is targeted towards research, development and demonstration of CCS technology.

The primary objective of the CLIMIT programme is:

  • To facilitate the development of CCS technologies and solutions.

The CLIMIT programme has three focus areas with corresponding performance goals:

  • Early full-scale CCS value chain in Europe;
  • Large-scale storage of CO2 on the Norwegian continental shelf in the North Sea;
  • Future solutions for CCS.

The programme provides funding for activities within all phases of development and commercialisation of new solutions.

This programme/activity normally accepts grant applications from:

Trade and industry, research institutes, universities and university colleges.



Overall budget:

The budget for CLIMIT R&D (administered by the Research Council) is NOK 105 million for 2017. The budget for CLIMIT Demo (administered by Gassnova) is approximately NOK 94 million for 2017 for development and demonstration projects. The CLIMIT Demo call for proposals is open-ended.
