Joint CSER and eScience Programme for Energy Research

Joint CSER and eScience Programme for Energy Research

This call is closed for 2017

This call for proposals is not only aimed to the participants in the CSER programme, but rather to the broad community of computational scientists performing energy research. The topics of research will remain, however, the same as within the current CSER programme, namely:

  • computational geoscience
  • wind and solar energy
  • multiphase flows
  • computational chemistry
  • and material sciences for energy research

Detailed information, and instructions for proposal submissions, can be found on the NWO website.


This call for project proposals is aimed for computational sciences for energy research, focused on developing eScience technologies (i.e. research software and methods for data analytics, data management, efficient computing - the core technological competences of the eScience Center).

When to apply

The deadline for the submission of pre-proposals is 30 May 2017, 14:00 CEST.
The deadline for submission of full proposals is 31 August 2017 14:00 CEST.
