The Norwegian CCS Research Centre (NCCS), including key industry and research actors, has been identified as strategically important. As such its involvement was one of the priorities of the Project.
A communication channel was opened between the Project, NCCS and European working groups, in particular the CCUS Implementation Working Group (IWG9). A constant coordination between those networks was established through coordination meetings and participation in common events. Several other Norwegian stakeholders were reached out by ensuring the presence of the Project in relevant events and fora and by organizing events in collaboration with European key working groups.
These activities contributed to increasing the understanding of Norwegian stakeholders on the European work processes and created a framework for a better collaboration and coordination among Norwegian and European actors.
The next phase will aim to further encourage Norwegian stakeholders to actively engage and provide inputs in order to reach the overarching objective to advance and promote Norwegian interests and priorities.
The project is financed by The Research Council of Norway
