Second call to be launched “as early in the New Year as possible”

Three messages to take away from the NER300 press conference given by Commissioner Hedegaard today:

  1. Second call to be launched “as early in the New Year as possible”. Hedegaard added: “The intention is that within a 12-month time span we will be able to award the second call.”
  2. Second call not to look radically different from the first call. Hedegaard: “We won’t change the funding criteria. It is the second call after the first call. No surprises there.”
  3. EC very keen to fund CCS in the second call but refuses to set aside money from withdrawn ULCOS CCS project specifically for CCS in the second call.

EC documentation is available on this DG CLIMA webpage.
