Open Access

User access is one of the essential activities of ECCSEL. Users can access the ECCSEL facilities through the Open Access that is continuously available. The access is secured using own funding.

ECCSEL ERIC calls for funded access



ECCSEL ERIC will in September 2022 open the second of two Transnational Access calls. The call funds access to ECCSEL ERIC research facilities and is open for applications from industry, SME’s, universities, and research institutes.

Details of the call

The second ECCSELERATE Transnational Access call offering access to ECCSEL ERIC facilities is dedicated to researchers or research teams from academia, industry or small and medium size enterprises (SMEs). Goal of the call is to extend existing knowledge in CCUS and target specific knowledge gaps within CCUS research.

To be eligible for funding, applicants must specify which of the CCUS knowledge gaps that will be tackled with their proposed research project. Applications can also target research gaps that are not listed in the ECCSEL ERIC Research Strategy. In this case the use of this additional knowledge gap will be reviewed by an internal panel. The members of this panel are persons who were involved in creating the updated ECCSEL ERIC Research Strategy. The important edibility criteria is that the proposed research will expand knowledge to fill CCUS knowledge gaps.

Applications will be reviewed every two months, with the first cut-off date being December 31st 2022.

The call opens on November 1st, 2022 and will stay open until Transnational Access funding is exhausted, or latest July 2023. Funds are available on a first come first served basis for the peer review highest ranked projects. Early applications are therefore advisable.
