Panorama seminar: Opportunities for research and innovation cooperation with South Korea within ESS and hydrogen
Live streaming, video recording will be available
About the event
South Korea is incorporated into the Panorama Strategy (2021–2027) for research and higher education cooperation. In this webinar, we will present collaboration and funding opportunities resulting from the Money Follows Cooperation agreement. The Research Council entered the MFC-agreement with KETEP (Korea Institute of Energy Technology Evaluation and Planning) in 2019. The agreement covers research collaboration in energy efficiency, renewable energy, smartgrid and energy storage systems (ESS).
KETEP is now preparing a call within battery storage (Energy Storage Systems) where Korean research organizations can apply for collaboration with Norwegian partners. The call is scheduled to open on May 23rd with a deadline in July. During the webinar we will present information related to the call.
Opportunities and interest in cooperating with South Korea in the field of hydrogen in relation to future calls will also be explored during the webinar.
As our second largest trading partner in Asia, and Norway's fifth largest market, South Korea offers market opportunities in the maritime and marine sector, renewable energy/hydrogen, health and health technology and smart societies. South Korea is also one of the countries who invests the largest share of GDP in research and innovation and is considered by several international rankings as one of the world's most innovative countries.
