Transnational Access calls - free RI access

Transnational Access calls

First Call: 2021-2022 FIRST TRANSNATIONAL ACCESS CALL: INDUSTRY ACCESS TO ECCSEL ERIC FACILITIES

The first ECCSELERATE Transnational Access call is dedicated to researchers from industry and SMEs, offering free access to ECCSEL ERIC research facilities. Eligible applicants are researchers and scientists from industrial companies and SMEs covering all areas within CCUS research. The ECCSELERATE / Horizon 2020 funded Transnational Access projects can, if required, be merged with other ongoing activities. Research done in collaboration between industry and universities/research institutes will also be eligible.

Deadlines:

Applications are reviewed monthly with the next cut-off date being 31. January 2022.

The call is planned to stay open until June 2022 on a first come first served basis. Early applications are therefore advisable.

Services offered as part of the Transnational Access calls

Free access to a selection of the best CCUS research facilities in Europe

Pre-competitive programmatic shared research & development:

Through the Transnational Access calls ECCSEL ERIC offers collaborative research through EU funded access to its CCUS Research Infrastructure.

Knowledge sharing through a community program:

The Transnational Access calls are funded by Horizon 2020. Results should therefore be published within a reasonable time in the open literature, specifying that the project leading to the publication has received funding from the European Horizon 2020 Programme: "This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 871143". 

Any dissemination of results (in any form, including electronic) must:
(a) display the EU emblem and
(b) include the text above

Capacity building between industry and research:

Through collaboration with ECCSEL ERIC as part of the Transnational Access calls, capacity building within own CCUS research activities is offered. Moreover, ECCSEL ERIC offers capacity building though its webinar program.
Technical and scientific support will be provided at the facility where research is performed. By collaboration with ECCSEL ERIC, industry and research communities can expand their capacities within CCUS.

ECCSELERATE project overview

ECCSELERATE is an EU-funded Horizon 2020 project aimed at increasing the use and ensuring the long-term sustainable operation of the ECCSEL ERIC RI. ECCSEL is currently in its early operational phase as an ERIC, and needs to ramp-up to an advanced stage of operation.

Work packages

Work packages

WP1 – ECCSEL ERIC Research Strategy and Services model development

The main objective of WP1 is to optimize services provided by ECCSEL ERIC to its stakeholders and industrial and scientific user groups through planned dialogues with targeted industrial sectors and the research community. The following tasks are being executed:

  • Identify industrial research needs and shape a tailor-made portfolio of research and technology development services for CCS (for WP2) to actively engage industry and academia and develop a tailored marketing strategy for industry
  • Evaluate the potential extension of ECCSEL’s scope to CO2 re-use
  • Establish a service model (a tailor-made compilation of access services) based on the updated ECCSEL ERIC Research Priorities, that addresses the research needs of stakeholders and user groups in conjunction with (task 2.1)

WP2 – Implementing the ECCSEL ERIC Research Strategy

This work package take inputs from WP1 and assess the future development needs in research and innovation to enable ECCSEL facilities to meet future user requirements for access to innovative, globally-leading technologies. It will also coordinate the resulting required actions and determine, and implement, the best way to monitor the impact of the evolving RI.

The work package is distributed between different tasks:

  • Develop and provide a tailor-made portfolio of research facilities meeting user needs, in conjunction with WP1
  • Develop and implement a procedure to aid the Research Infrastructure Coordination Committee (RICC) to review the ECCSEL ERIC Infrastructure Development Plan, and to provide technical advice to the ECCSEL ERIC Operations Centre in ECCSEL
  • Execute a limited number of supported (industrial) access services to upgraded facilities
  • Define new facilities and conceptual designs for testing and improving developed user services identified in WP1, to increase reliability and engender trust in ECCSEL ERIC
  • Implement the ECCSEL ERIC Research Priorities: develop a conceptual design (desk) study for a high priority, high value, large-scale research facility identified from the Research Priorities update of WP1

WP3 – Improving access to ECCSEL ERIC

This work package focus on improving access to ECCSEL ERIC facilities to a wider user group. Therefore, the following tasks have been defined:

  • Adapt and test the ECCSEL ERIC access and related frameworks (with input from WP1 and 2) to real user needs, and review protocols for access of different users groups, including industry
  • Improve the quality of access and services made available by ECCSEL facilities, provide dedicated access pilots (shaped in conjunction with WP2) to test and improve user services, and thereby increase reliability and create trust
  • Enhance the quality of access by listening to user requirements, developing bespoke solutions implemented by ECCSEL ERIC and reviewing the effectiveness of access
  • Develop supporting activities, including capacity building and targeted training and education opportunities, coordinated with WP1 and WP2, to respond to challenges in science, industry, society. These activities will facilitate the sharing of skills, know-how and specific expertise, and will increase the quality of the new services implemented and of the access pilot provided.

WP4 – Developing national nodes and expanding the ECCSEL ERIC membership

  • Further anchor ECCSEL ERIC in national and regional strategies, roadmaps, and funding programmes
  • Develop Regional Partner Facilities, taking into account the Research and Innovation Strategies for Smart Specialisations of the EU Regions (RIS3)
  • Share good practice between countries to improve the functioning of the national nodes and to share experience with potential new member countries in their preparation for joining ECCSEL ERIC
  • Attract new countries to expand the membership of ECCSEL ERIC to other European countries

WP5 – Positioning ECCSEL ERIC internationally

This work package is aimed at enhancing the global visibility and knowledge of ECCSEL ERIC, helping to ensure ECCSEL ERIC’s status as a world class RI. It is organised into three complimentary tasks:

  • Promote and embed the use of ECCSEL ERIC facilities in EU, ERA ACT and other funding programs within and outside Europe
  • Anchor ECCSEL ERIC in European CCS implementation
  • Improve the global visibility of ECCSEL ERIC

WP6 – ECCSEL ERIC long-term sustainability and Business Plan

This work package focuses on measures to ensure the long-term financial and operational sustainability of ECCSEL ERIC. The Business Plan of ECCSEL ERIC will be extended, taking into account the results from work performed in other WPs of ECCSELERATE. Information from internationally recognised European Commission outline documents, e.g. SET Plan, European Commission consultation on the long-term sustainability of pan-European research infrastructures, will be used to develop a long-term sustainability roadmap and positive business case for ECCSEL ERIC. Suitable actions will be defined and adapted to achieve the goals set out in the long-term sustainability roadmap.

WP7 – Project coordination

WP7 will provide efficient and cost-effective contractual, financial and administrative management of the ECCSELERATE project. It will ensure regular communication with the EU Commission through the Project Officer, facilitate communication and consistency within the consortium, and manage project risks. WP7 will be responsible for fulfilling the EC reporting requirements.

WP8 – Transnational Access:

WP8 handles the provision of Transnational Access to the by WPs 1, 2 and 3 defined ECCSEL facilities. ECCSEL ERIC will, as part of its normal activities handle most activities required to provide this Transnational Access.
