Radical Innovation Sprint 2020

If you have a wild idea let’s get ready to explore its potential! Unlock your creativity by taking part in the DHRTC Radical Innovation Sprint. Together, your idea and our knowledge can lead to new research and results. Again in 2020 the Radical Innovation Team calls for radical ideas with a deadline on 1 May 2020.

At Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre we want to investigate all ideas that might improve the production of oil and gas in the Danish North Sea – no matter how crazy or wild they might seem.  

 

DHRTC’s Radical Innovation Sprint offers funding to people who have radical ideas with the potential to change the oil and gas industry. Over the last three years, 25% of submitted radical ideas were funded. Anyone can apply for the Radical Innovation Sprint 2020. We urge you to participate in one of our sessions or workshops during February, March and April. However, it is NOT a prerequisite to apply.

 

Applicants might be new to oil and gas and even practice a discipline that is normally completely unrelated to the oil and gas industry. You might also be familiar with oil and gas research. Regardless, we would like to engage with you to combine your idea with our knowledge.

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, neighbor industries and people with an innovative mindset.

 

Things you need to know

  • The funded research sprint MUST be conducted between 1 September to 30 November 2020
  • Your idea has to have a line of sight to application in the Danish oil and gas industry in the North Sea
  • Specialists from DHRTC can help you mature your idea prior to submission of your application
  • You do NOT have to be a researcher from one of the partner institutions to apply for funding.
  • You submit your idea by completing the application form and sending it via e-mail.
  • You may apply without interacting with DHRTC prior to submission.
  • The applications will be evaluated in anonymized form by a committee known only to the Radical Innovation Team.

Sessions and workshops in spring 2020

 

The Radical Innovation Team goes on road trips across the partnership to host idea generation workshops in order to develop your ideas. We are open to collaborate with anybody and support you throughout the process. This means that no matter where and by whom you are hired you are welcome to attend any of the workshops. You simply let us know.

Sign up for sessions and workshops by e-mail to Kristine from the Radical Innovation team at krihil@dtu.dk 

 

The workshops are focused on the teaming and idea generation aspects of research. When participating in a workshop it is an advantage if you have participated in our oil and gas introduction in 2020 or earlier. Each of the workshops have a maximum of 14 attendees. Some are fixed but others will open once 4 researchers have signed up. You can sign up for more than one workshop.

 

Besides the sessions and workshops you can – at any given time – request a meeting with one from the radical innovation team to discuss your idea or research area.

 

If you are a researcher from a DHRTC network institution you may get your travel expenses covered if you participate at a location other than your own. Contact your local focal point for approval BEFORE you order your ticket etc.

 

If you have questions you are welcome to contact anyone in the Radical Innovation Team or your local LFP.
