Nordic CCS Summer School

Nordic CCS Summer School August 18-23, 2013

Dear NORDICCS Partners,

The NORDICCS CCS Summer School will be held at Mongstad and Trondheim Norway on August 18-23, 2013. Please note that there is a change in the date from what was planned previously.

We would like to invite thirty students from the Nordic countries to participate in the summer school. We are designing the course work for the summer school so that the students will obtain 3 credit hours for completing the course and passing the exam.

The Nordic CCS Summer School is a one-week intensive course in CO2 capture, transport and storage. The course has a distinct industrial focus that will be ensured by involving lecturers from industry as well as a one-day excursion to the CO2 capture plant at Technology Centre Mongstad (TCM). This will allow the students to obtain a good understanding of the size and complexity involved with industrial CCS projects as well as the theoretical knowledge of CCS. By covering the complete CCS value chain and addressing framework issues such as life cycle analysis, financing, HSE, public acceptance, political and legal issues and innovation, the students will develop knowledge on how CCS works in “real life”. An important goal with the course is to develop a Nordic CCS network between the participants. The course has a good balance between lectures and group work, and requires a final exam.

The course is primarily intended for PhD/Post.doc students and industry researchers with CCS competence. However, students at the Master level can also apply. Applicants must be enrolled at a Nordic university or be working for a Nordic company.
