Submission is closed

Thank you for all the submissions! We look forward to reading the applications. Answers will be sent out by the end of June.

If you are in doubt about if we received your application, you are welcome to contact the team.

An external committee will evaluate the submitted radical ideas anonymously and recommend which ideas to fund. The committee consists of researchers, people from the oil and gas industry, neighbour industries and people with an innovative mindset. 

Scope of the call

The Danish oil and gas industry is closing in 2050 - in RIS 2021 we will work on creative solutions for improving the late life production, abandonment of oil and gas fields, and energy transition. 


In scope this year are wild ideas with a potential application for the Danish North Sea oil and gas industry and Carbon Storage.


You may be new to oil and gas and work in areas normally completely unrelated to the industry, or you may be familiar with oil and gas research. We encourage everyone to combine their expertise with our knowledge to generate ideas. Just get in touch with us.
