iSOP stands for Innovation in Supercritical Carbon Dioxide Power Systems. It is a four year project funded by the European Commission through the Marie Sklodovska-Curie subprogramme of Horizon Europe, the 100 billion Euro flagship R&D programme in the EU.
iSOP is an Industrial Doctoral Network (MSCA-DN-IN) coordinated by University of Seville (Prof. David T. Sánchez Martínez) and focused on different yet complementary key aspects of the technology: system integration for internally or externally heated concepts, component (turbomachinery and heat exchangers) design and manufacturing, operation, control, materials, enviro-economics… To investigate each topic, an Early Stage Researcher (Doctoral Candidate) will be recruited by two members of the consortium. This is a unique feature of this class of projects, aimed at maximising the exposure of the researchers to both scientific and industrial environments (50% of the time spent at academia and industry).
