Assumptions and premises - WP1
Work package 1 represents the integrating activities of the Centre.

The aim is to build the Centre and define a common basis for the partners of the Centre by establishing strategic and analytic frameworks to identify, assess and promote viable pathways for CCS in the Nordic countries.

WP1 will arrange workshops and seminars among the consortium partners in order to provide a platform for information exchange and discussion of results. This will improve coordination and interaction among the stakeholders.

A  NORDICCS seminar entitled "Barriers and a New Strategy for CCS Innovation and Implementation"  was arranged as part of the Technoport Conference in Trondheim on April 17th, 2012. The seminar consisted of introductory talks followed by a round table discussion.

 A video of the entire round table will be submitted shortly.

A Roadmap for implementation of CCS in the Nordic countries will be developed as a joint effort among all partners in the first year of the Centre. The roadmap will describe Joint Nordic Strategies to promote Widespread Implementation of CCS and will contain several possible scenarios for implementation of CCS in the Nordic countries. The status of the different technologies required for a CCS in Capture, Transport and Storage will also be assessed.
