Two ERICs - CESSDA ERIC and ECCSEL ERIC - hosted by Norway established today by Commission Decision

It is the first time that ERICs will be hosted by an associated country.

Today the Commission established the Consortium of European Social Science Data Archives (CESSDA ERIC) and the European Carbon Dioxide Capture and Storage Laboratory (ECCSEL ERIC) with statutory seats in Bergen and Trondheim respectively.

CESSDA ERIC aims at providing a distributed and sustainable research infrastructure enabling the research community to conduct high-quality research in the social sciences contributing to the production of effective solutions to the major challenges facing society today and to facilitate teaching and learning. The Commission has supported CESSDA and CESSDA related activities under FP-7 and H2020 for an amount of about 18 Mln EUR. CESSDA entered the ESFRI Roadmap in 2006.
