ISOR´s success in Horizon 2020

Iceland GeoSurvey (ÍSOR) applied for five research grants to The EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation last year; HORIZON 2020.

Four of those five applications were recently accepted, whilst the fifth application was not accepted at this time, but was awarded the passing mark. The usual success rate for EU-applications is about 15-30%, and ÍSOR‘s acceptance rate of 80% should be considered a very good result.

These four European research and development projects will be worked on for the next four years, from 2016-2019. Participants are from 31 institutions, universities and energy and research organisations from all over Europe. In Iceland, apart from ÍSOR, the participants are HS-Orka, Landsvirkjun and GEORG, a geothermal research group. The EU grants to ÍSOR for these four projects, will both provide work for eight specialists and graduate students for the next four years, and cover any miscellaneous costs.
