Nordic Energy Research is offering support for Nordic-Baltic PhD and researcher mobility in key areas that Nordic Energy Research has identified as most relevant for Nordic Energy Research cooperation: digitalisation, development of the electricity market, energy storage, transport, bioenergy and carbon capture, utilization and storage (CCUS).
The aims and objectives of the PhD and researcher mobility projects are:
to develop, facilitate and create a more concrete framework for collaboration and co-operation between higher education institutions, research institutions and industry in the Nordic and Nordic-Baltic regions;
to offer support to PhD and research projects in the key areas: digitalisation, development of the electricity market, energy storage, transport, bioenergy and CCUS;
to help students and researchers to create useful networks.
The program has allocated NOK 2.7 million for the projects in the Nordic and Baltic countries.
Proposal submission deadline 15 January 2020.
In the year 2018, all three Baltic countries entered into the Baltic-Nordic energy research cooperation initiated by Nordic Energy Research (NER). The goal of the agreement is to improve cooperation in the field of energy and to find regional solutions for the creation of future energy systems. This means joint scientific research and exchange programmes for researchers and doctoral students.
