Deliverables

  • Structure, resources and provisions of National Nodes

    Structure, resources and provisions of National Nodes from NTNU, BGS, TNO, CIUDEN, ETH, CERTH, PGI, BRGM, OGS – one report per country This task is focused mainly on the development and implementation of the ECCSEL National Nodes. Implementing the ECCSEL National Nodes as national multi-partner coordination bodies will increase the capacity to communicate ECCSEL messages towards the National Authorities and obtain final commitments. This deliverable will focus on and provide details on structure, resources and provisions of National Nodes.

  • Implementing the operation of ECCSEL existing research facilities (CAT-1)

    One of the tasks of this workpackage is, in cooperation with WP1, to first define the ECCSEL RI based on existing facilities located in the current ECCSEL committed member states. In ECCSEL Preparatory Phase II, most fact sheets of existing (CAT-1) facilities have been prepared and this will be the starting point for the work in this task. The work will revise and update the information on technical possibilities of the current research facilities, and structure these according to their research relevance (to Capture, Transport, and Storage) and type (lab-scale, pilot and demo facility). Required revisions of fact sheets due to technical upgrades already implemented will be done, and fact sheets describing new facilities will be prepared. The fact sheets for all CAT-1 facilities will include required information on technical operation, cost for usage and HES. Work will also be undertaken to collect documentation from facility owners to prepare protocols on the required technical and human support to make access possible to agreed services. This information will support the implementation of the transnational access managed by WP1. This work will result in this report on implementing the operation of ECCSEL existing research facilities (CAT-1) forming the initial ECCSEL RI.

  • Industrial sponsorship frame work

    The aim is to setup a frame work for sponsorship, specific to industrial users of ECCSEL and management of industrial engagement. In this respect, the proximity of research facilities, proper business capacity building, availability of venture capital and other facilitation of start-ups, demonstration projects, and a stimulating climate for collaboration are of great importance for ECCSEL. The framework should stimulate and engage industrial participants. In order to stimulate know-how clustering it is important that the critical mass of the European research programme of CCS is embedded in the dedicated innovation management tool of ECCSEL.A concentration of commercial and scientific activities in the field of CCS provides synergy in the form of joint ventures, new creativity and facility sharing. This deliverable will describe this Industrial sponsorship frame work, its outline and the interaction between with ECCSEL and the Industry

  • Implementation of the ECCSEL RI Coordination Committee

    The RI Coordination Committee for ECCSEL, as outlined in the Business Plan, will be established by decision of the ECCSEL Board at the start of the project. The committee will consist of representatives of operators/owners of research facilities from all member states involved in ECCSEL. The Coordination Committee will report directly to the Executive Director. The main role of this committee is described in section 3.2.1 of the business plan. A monitoring tool for the usage of facilities and related innovation will be developed in cooperation with WP1 and WP2. Each facility will report to the Coordination Committee about the operation, suggestions/plans for improvements and innovations. The Coordination Committee will develop assessment criteria and KPIs for evaluation of the performance of the facilities and its management. Based on the KPIs, suggestions about required corrective actions to improve performance will be proposed by the Coordination Committee to support the relevant facility owners. The Coordination Committee will keep the overview of the development of ECCSEL RI and align this with the strategic plans (WP4) and prioritization of the upgrading (CAT-2) and new (CAT-3) facilities in Task 3.3. The detailed tasks, responsibilities, structure and initial composition of the Coordination Committee will be covered by this report.

  • Capacity building strategy (training needs, mapping existing courses, courses curriculum, H&S issues) preliminary report

    Development of a capacity building strategy and common training guidelines: In this report, the needs of ECCSEL will be identified, in terms of capacity building and, particularly, for training, through a consultation process with the ECCSEL partners and the facility owners. A strategy to better respond to the identified needs will be developed and rationalized. Training guidelines will be provided to the entire ECCSEL community, in order to guarantee the adoption of a high level standard for all the facilities. Training will be particularly addressed to meet the needs of prospective users and to the knowledge sharing among the researchers of ECCSEL. Best practises on how to manage these aspects will be provided and included in the guidelines, in order to assure the adoption of a common standard. Mapping of the existing relevant training courses will also be conducted on a national basis, considering courses held both by consortium members and by not members, in order to best address the guidelines and better calibrate any training action within ECCSEL. This deliverable will define the actual content of the training courses to be organized, addressing the needs of the prospective users of the Transnational Access Program. This is the preliminary capacity building strategy report (including training needs, mapping existing courses, courses curriculum, H&S issues). It will be updated later in a final report.

  • Operational framework for National Nodes

    Under this task the establishment and organization of the Operational Centre and National Nodes will be supported. The Operations Centre (OC) will be located in Norway, and will be directly connected with the National Nodes in countries willing to invest funds in ECCSEL. The National Nodes will act as coordination body between owners of the facilities (legal entities) at each country member of ECCSEL. Each National Node will nominate a National Coordinator with the following responsibilities: - Facilitate and Coordinate the development (adding more institutions) of the National Node’s research infrastructure in accordance with ECCSEL principles; - Communicate and promote ECCSEL objectives towards the National Authorities and Funding Agencies - Act as liaison between the National Nodes and the Operations Centre; - Being member of the ECCSEL RI Coordination Committee; - Facilitate and support in coordination with the Access Provider (Local Contact Person ) visiting researchers during the Transnational Access Programme (WP8-WP21) This deliverable will establish the general requirements and criteria to qualify as an ECCSEL National Node. In addition the right and obligations of the Nodes and the relationship with the Operation Centre will be finalized and agreed. It will establish and implement the operational framework for National Nodes

  • Outreach material

    To stimulate awareness on the project activities and opportunities, an extensive production and distribution of printed and electronic material is envisaged (Presentations as a basis for presenting ECCSEL at meetings and conferences, A4 flyer, flyers, posters which can be circulated in printed form (e.g. to hand out at conferences). The electronic version (e.g. PDF file) can also be circulated electronically. CIUDEN will ensure that material for each part of the CCS Value Chain is produced and vetted by partner(s) conversant with the topic featured.

  • Newsletter 1

    Series of newsletters about the project published in M4, M8, M12, M16, M20, M24 Newsletters will be issued quarterly, electronically distributed to the ECCSEL network database and printed for distribution at the different events that will take place during the project. The newsletter will include information on the progress of the project and all related information that the partners think is useful to disseminate (like calls for transnational access, research findings, research facility descriptions, partner profiles, ongoing research). The newsletter will be posted on the ECCSEL website and widely disseminated via the other CCS related networks (EERA, ETP ZEP, IEGHG network EERA, etc.).
