Twinning to Sustainable Energy Transition (TWINN2SET)


The project Twinning to Sustainable Energy Transition (TWINN2SET) is implemented as a partnership between the Greek Institute of Geoenergy of the Foundation for Research & Technology – Hellas (IG/FORTH), the Norwegian University of Stavanger (UiS) and the French Research Center IFP Energies Nouvelles (IFPEN), in the domains of 1) Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS), 2) Deep Geothermal Energy and 3) Subsurface Hydrogen Storage. It consists of a capacity building & mentoring programme in the above three areas which will be complemented by an exploratory project focusing on Hydrogen storage in Geological formations, fostering interdisciplinary competencies at the interplay of a promising energy vector with subsurface reservoir characterisation, modelling and monitoring.

Twinning aims to enhance networking activities between a research institution of a Widening countries and top-class leading counterparts at EU level by linking it with at least two research institutions from two different Member States or Associated Countries. Therefore, building on the huge potential of networking for excellence through knowledge transfer and exchange of best practice between research institutions and partners. Twinning actions intend to help raise the research profile of the institution from the Widening country as well as the research profile of its staff including a special focus on strengthening the research management and administrative skills of the coordination institution from the Widening country
