This 1-hour webinar was organised by the SFERA-III team on 8 January 2021 at 11:00 AM (CET). It provides key information on how to benefit from the free access programme to state-of-the-art CSP research infrastructures for 2021.

About Transnational Access to CSP facilities

The 3rd SFERA-III access campaign was launched on 16 November 2020. This call for projects provides free access to 22 installations of 12 state-of-the-art research infrastructures in Concentrated Solar Thermal power in 8 countries.

The campaign offers access to a wide spectrum of experiments such as:

  • Solar thermal electricity generation
  • Solar fuels production
  • Cycles for chemical storage of solar energy
  • Solar water treatment
  • Solar heating and cooling of buildings to improve energy efficiency
  • Modelling and controlling of concentrating solar technologies for power plants and for industrial processes
  • High value material synthesis and/or coatings deposits
  • High-flux photochemistry and photo-physics
  • Characterisation of materials behaviour and properties under extreme conditions

The 3rd SFERA-III campaign is open until 31 January 2021. The selected projects will benefit from 1 to 4 weeks of free access to the chosen facilities for a team of up to 2 persons. Moreover, travel, accommodation and subsistence costs are reimbursed by the project’s budget.
