North Sea Young CCS Researchers Conference

UK ECRs are being invited by CATO-2, the Dutch national R&D programme for CO2 capture, transport and storage, to participate in the first North Sea Young CCS Researchers Meeting on Wednesday 18th June in the Netherlands.

This event follows the success of the ECR Networking Meeting, co-hosted by UKCCSRC and CATO-2 at the University of York on the 24- 25 March 2014.

In order to implement large scale CCS around the North Sea, international cooperation is a must. This event will focus on the next generation of CCS researchers who will have responsibility for the development and implementation of CCS technology on a large scale.

The meeting will comprise an onsite meeting in the Rotterdam Harbour area, an opportunity for ECRs to present and discuss their research projects and a visit to the CATO demonstration capture plant at the E.ON power plant.

During the meeting, ECRs will also work on a declaration of North Sea Young CCS Researchers to be presented to John Gale, General Manger, IEA GHG, who will Chair the session on the future CCS research and international cooperation during the 7th Dutch CCS Symposium

There is no fee to attend these events and paid accommodation is available for up to ten UK ECRs for two nights (17th and 18th June). The meeting will start at 8.30 sharp on the 18th June so participants are advised to travel to Amsterdam on the 17th June. The number of places is LIMITED, so first come, first serve!
