Funding and financing carbon capture and storage (CCS) in Central and Eastern Europe

The CCS4CEE project consortium is pleased to invite you to the workshop titled Funding and financing carbon capture and storage (CCS) in Central and Eastern Europe.

The event will take place online (Zoom platform) on the 31st of March, 9:30 to 12:30 CET. The purpose of the workshop is to familiarize participants with the funding opportunities available for CCS projects in Central and Eastern Europe and, at the same time, to create momentum for future funding applications and regional cooperation. Adequate funding and financing is a key enabler of the deployment of CCS projects.

The event will feature speakers from EU institutions and Member States, industry, as well as partners of the CCS4CEE project. The event is hosted under the auspices of the CCS4CEE project which aims to relaunch the debate on deploying CCS in the CEE region.

Please register here in order to confirm your participation. We look forward to seeing you there!
