Submission deadline 1 May 2021


The Danish oil and gas industry is closing in 2050 - join RIS 2021 to 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.

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. 


Things you need to know

  • The funded research sprint takes place between 1 September to 30 November 2021
  • Your idea has potential for application in the Danish oil and gas industry in the North Sea or Carbon Storage
  • Specialists from DHRTC can help you mature your idea prior to submission of your application
  • Easy and simple submission: You submit your idea by filling in a simple application form and a poster
  • Application submission is open from 1 April to 1 May 23:59
  • Applications will be evaluated in double-blind anonymized form by a committee
  • Everybody can apply!
