On 12 January, Nordic Energy Research held a webinar for approximately 50 registered attendees curious to learn more about the open call for Nordic maritime transport and energy research.

The call is organised under the Nordic Maritime Transport and Energy Research Programme, which has been commissioned to continue until 2027 due to the evident potential of gathering experts within the Nordic maritime field, highlighted by the research conducted in the previous programme period of 2021–2023. Nordic Energy Research is pleased to see such commitment among the programme partners as well as the potential call applicants to address the challenges of transitioning the maritime transport sector.  

“The interest that we have experienced to this point underlines the relevance of this open call. We hope that the webinar brings more clarity about the call to interested applicants and incentivises the interest in establishing or joining a Nordic consortium on maritime transport and energy research,” says Ole Aune Ødegård, Adviser at Nordic Energy Research and Programme Administrator of the Nordic Maritime Transport and Energy Research Programme.  

Deadline for handing in applications to the open call is 22 February 2024 at 13:00 (CET).
