There are no formal common funding calls for MoU activities but efforts will be made between funding agencies to coordinate funding calls and facilitate cooperation. Cooperative activities under the MoU may include ministries and other governmental bodies, companies (private as well as public), research institutes and academia. The activities may take the form of common projects, meetings, and exchange of data and information.
Under the MoU, four technology areas have been selected for cooperation the field of CCUS :
- Large-Scale Testing of Carbon Capture Technologies
- CO2 Storage and MVA
