    • What is CO2MPRISE?

      CO2MPRISE is an acronym of a research project. It stands for "COabsorbing Materials Project _ RISE". The objective of CO2MPRISE is to find an inexpensive, effective and robust solution for significant CO2 reduction from industries and civil transport. It represents one of the main and fascinating challenges proposed to the scientific community in the next 10 years and is considered as a key pillar of HORIZON 2020. The aim of CO2MPRISE is to bring together subject matter experts from the academic and non-academic sectors to develop new technologies in CO2 capture and conversion field.

    • The project

      What kind of project is it?

      It’s a project financed by the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions – Research Fellowship Programme – Research and Innovation Staff Exchange (RISE). Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions are a new initiative, focussed at promoting international and intersectoral collaboration through secondments of personnel between partner institutions (Universities and companies). It’s about sharing ideas and knowledge from the world of research to business and vice versa, promoting the progress of science and the development of innovation.
