EU' s Sixth Framework Programme
NTNU's ambitions concerning participation in the European research arena through the Framework Programmes are to participate in at least one Integrated Project (IP) or Network of Excellence (NoE) within each of NTNUs strategic focus areas. Furthermore, NTNU will seek to increase the overall participation in the Sixth Framework Programme compared to the Fifth.
Fifth Framework Programme
In the Fifth Programme Energy and the Environment participated in 12 projects, of which five were Marie Curie Training Sites for European doctoral students. EPRM received a total of 2,4 million € in the Fifth Programme.
Sixth Framework Programme
So far, the research communities in this focus area, hav five projects in the Sixth Programme:
In 1000 €
ENCAP - IP
Enhanced Capture of CO2
ENGAS - RI
Environmental Gas Management
NATURALHY - IP
Preparing for the hydrogen economy by using the
CO2 from Capture to storage
FURIM - IP
Further Improvement and System Integration of
The ENGAS project is of particular importance, and its Research Infrastructure (RI) status yields a European stamp-of-approval for the NTNU/SINTEF laboratory facilities and scientific competence in the field of climate gasses.
