SUNRISE selected for European large-scale research initiative

2019-02-19

The SUNRISE project for a coordination and support action (CSA) has been successfully selected by the European Commission as one of the six candidates for a European large-scale research initiative.

Leif Hammarström, professor in Physical Chemistry, will coordinate Uppsala University's part in the project.

Uppsala University is one of the partners in a new exciting project called SUNRISE. The goal for SUNRISE is to eventually become a Large scale research project within the Horizon Europe programme.

SUNRISE is a European Project selected as one of six Coordination and Support Actions (CSA) selected from the 2018 call “FETFLAG-01-2018” within the Horizon 2020 programme. Starting with funding of 1 million euros over one year (starting spring 2019) it's setting the basis for a European large scale research project.

The project aims at providing a sustainable alternative to fossil-based energy-intensive production of fuels and chemicals, based on solar energy conversion and widely available feedstock (CO2, H2O, N2). A sustainable CO2 cycle, which leads to an atmospheric CO2 concentration decrease and stabilisation at a level compatible with climate stability, is the main target behind this approach, which also aims for sustainable use of land and natural resources to implement a circular economy.

SUNRISE joins together with stakeholders from academia, industry, policy and society, including NGOs and global players in the energy, chemicals and automotive sectors, to develop the S&T roadmap of a large research initiative in the Energy, Environment and Climate Change area.
