Six million euros to research on utilising atmospheric carbon dioxide

18 Dec 2019

The Academy of Finland has chosen nine consortia with 18 subprojects to be funded in the C1 Value Academy programme. The research consortia received a total of six million euros in funding. The projects will launch in January 2020.

The research subjects include chemical reactions which can be used to transform carbon dioxide into fuel or raw material for the chemical industry, reaction routes, enzymes and catalysts, and improving the energy efficiency of carbon dioxide recovery.

The C1 Value programme is aimed at making scientific breakthroughs, generating new know-how and boosting Finland’s scientific competence within the field of atmospheric carbon dioxide research. In addition to having scientific impact, the programme is hoped to impact the progress of climate change and to help Finland meet its climate targets. The funding period for the programme will begin in 2020 and come to a close at the end of 2023.

In 2019, the Academy of Finland funds 14 Academy Programmes. Academy Programmes are science-driven, thematic and target-oriented bodies of research projects that are aimed at supporting scientific regeneration and increasing scientific and other impact. Academy Programmes support multi- and interdisciplinary research of the highest quality, promote networking between researchers and provide a platform for international research cooperation.
