The UK Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) has launched a £15 million Call for CCUS Innovation to offer grant funding for innovation projects that lead to:

- A significant reduction in the cost of capturing and sequestering carbon dioxide; and/or
- A quicker, more widespread deployment of CCUS in the UK and internationally;

Funding of up to £5 million will be considered for feasibility studies, industrial research or experimental development projects; and up to £7 million for research infrastructure that enables the UK to conduct world-leading research and innovation into CCUS. Project funding will be available for up to 24 months, with projects finishing by 31st March 2021.

This Call will ensure the UK remains at the forefront of CCUS innovation, developing novel technology and processes that reduce the cost of deploying CCUS and positions the UK as a world technology leader in CCUS.

The deadline for receipt of applications for the next evaluation is 31 August 2018.

In order to increase the exposure of early career researchers (ECRs) and postgraduate students (PhDs) to international collaboration, ETP has offered, via the SFC PECRE grant scheme, awards for ECRs and PhDs working within one or more of ETP’s energy themes to participate in exchanges with companies or academic institutions abroad.

ETP is currently focused on 11 energy themes: bioenergy; carbon capture and storage; energy conversion and storage; energy, people & society; energy utilisation in buildings; heat energy; marine energy; oil & gas; power networks & grid technologies; solar energy; and wind energy.

Award designed to increase the impact of Doctorate projects or early career research by supporting international exchanges in Europe, North America, China and India.

The awards are up to a maximum of £3000 each; they are competitive; and we aim to grant one award per ETP energy theme, up to a maximum of 3 awards in any one theme.

This programme is addressing the strategic demands of industry and government for ‘industry-ready’, post-doctoral researchers to enhance energy industry innovation and knowledge exchange effectiveness. A defining characteristic of the programme is strong industry engagement where companies are co-investors, support project specification and engage with the research directly.

Project proposals are sought from ETP member universities, for projects that support the themes of the Scottish Government’s Energy Strategy. These can include technological, numerical, environmental, legislative, economic, and policy aspects.

The programme requires industry (or equivalent) partners who will help to define new projects relevant to their business aims and be prepared to make a financial contribution.

CSA (100%) 3m euro. Establishing the necessary infrastructure for safe and cost-effective CO2 transport and storage is of high importance in Europe. Early CCS projects will most likely explore CO2 storage sinks in the vicinity of capture points, and the required infrastructure will therefore most likely be initiated at national level in CO2 hubs and industrial clusters in order to achieve economies of scale by sharing CO2 transport and storage infrastructure. A cross border transport infrastructure is ultimately necessary to efficiently connect the CO2 hubs and industrial clusters to sinks.

RIA (100%) 12 m euro. Conversion of captured CO2, for example using hydrogen made from renewable energy, to produce fuels is not only a means to replace fossil fuels, but also a promising solution for seasonal energy storage. There are still relevant and significant scientific and technological challenges to be able to exploit the CO2 as a chemical and fuel feedstock in a systematic manner, the main challenge being that the chemical utilisation of CO2 is limited by its low energy content, and the conversion process is highly energy intensive.

RIA (100%) 20m euro. Commercial deployment of CCS requires a significant reduction of the energy intensity of the CO2 capture process for power plants or other energy-intensive industries, and a substantial decrease of the cost of capture. A continuous effort is needed to develop and demonstrate new and advanced capture technologies, including new materials.

RIA (100%) 22m Euro. Most low-carbon pathways leading to well below 2°C (or 1.5°C) stabilisation of the global temperature – in line with the Paris Agreement goals – include negative emissions to compensate for residual emissions and/or temperature overshoot and highlight the critical role of land-use based mitigation. There is therefore a need to quantitatively assess the potential, effectiveness and impacts of negative emission technologies/practices and of land-use mitigation options, in achieving the long-term goals of the Paris Agreement, as well as linking these to what it would mean for concrete policy challenges.

ERC Starting Grants are designed to support excellent Principal Investigators at the career stage at which they are starting their own independent research team or programme. Applicant Principal Investigators must demonstrate the ground-breaking nature, ambition and feasibility of their scientific proposal. Starting Grants may be awarded up to a maximum of EUR 1 500 000 for a period of 5 years.

More information

Next closing date: 1 Dec 2017

The aim of these awards is to provide financial support for innovative and original research projects of high quality and potential, the choice of theme and the design of the research lying entirely with the applicant (the Principal Investigator). Research Project Grants may be held for up to five years. The maximum grant value is £500,000.

TOPIC ERA Chairs and TOPIC Twinning : deadline 15 Nov 2017 17:00

The ERA Chairs actions will support universities or research organisations with the objective of attracting and maintaining high quality human resources under the direction of an outstanding researcher and research manager (the “ERA Chair holder”) and in parallel implementing the structural changes necessary to achieve excellence on a sustainable basis.

The scientific field can be any domain of research and innovation addressed under the Treaty, however it needs to be closely connected with the activities of the ERA Chair holder and fully capitalise on his/her presence and expertise.
