Unsolicited Proposals to CORC

The Novo Nordisk Foundation CO2 Research Center (CORC) is an international center of excellence in fundamental research and early technologies for CO2 capture and conversion for storage and use. The center research is interdisciplinary and includes chemical and life sciences, and modeling to develop new platforms for mitigating greenhouse gas-induced climate change.

The purpose of considering ‘Unsolicited Proposals’ for funding is to respond rapidly to emerging ideas or opportunities that are outside current open, defined Calls for Proposals. The proposed projects should be exceptional, innovative, and complementary to ongoing research or other activities that are of strategic interest to CORC. Notably, projects should be clearly different from those that would be considered in regular funding cycles.

Projects can also include high risk, high reward research. While few constraints are provided here to collect broadly also unconventional ideas and projects, a larger emphasis is placed on projects that use chemical, biological, or a combination of both sciences to significantly advance CORC’s mission on mitigating greenhouse gases (CO2, CH4) at scale.
