Do you have a Radical Idea?

Do you have ideas that could radically improve how oil and gas are being produced or recovered from the Danish North Sea? Would you like to explore your idea? - Then our call for Radical Ideas may be something for you.

If your idea is new and has the potential of radically transforming the oil and gas production from the Danish North Sea then you should submit it to us. No matter which aspect – large or small - that your idea addresses we are interested in hearing from you.

This autumn the Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre (DHRTC) funds radical innovation ideas. Funding covers a period of three months (September - November 2017) where funded ideas can be developed further in order to look into if they have potential. If your knowledge of oil and gas production is limited we are able to guide you with feedback and scoping of your proposal prior to submission.

To the right you can find downloadable Q&A’s relating to the Radical Sprint and you can find the form to be used for submission of your radical idea. Always feel free to contact Lene Hjelm Poulsen or Kristine Wille Hilstrøm at DHRTC for guidance (see the boxes to the right).

All applicants will get a response by late August 2017. In case we find your application within the scope of Radical Innovation but need further clarification we will contact you.

We look forward to receiving your application.

Submission date is no later than June 20th 2017 at midnight.

Send your idea to our email here.

If you need support of any kind during the weekend, please reach out to Kristine (see contact on the right side)
