ECR Meeting Fund

The UK Carbon Capture and Storage Research Centre (UKCCSRC) has established a meeting fund to provide a mechanism for UK based Early Career Researchers (ECRs) working and studying within the academic UK CCS community to attend UKCCSRC meetings, such as the programme and network conferences, that they would not otherwise be able to attend.

ECRs can apply to the fund to support their attendance at two UKCCSRC meetings per year and it is normally expected that meeting activities will take place within one month of notification of funding. Funding is also available to support attendance at UKCCSRC CPD courses and the UKCCSRC ECR Winter School – this is in addition to funding attendance at two other UKCCSRC meetings per year.

It is a condition of the award that ECRs who successfully secure funding to attend UKCCSRC meeting(s) contribute to social media during the event and a blog after the meeting, for publication on the UKCCSRC website.

It is expected that supporting ECRs via this fund to attend UKCCSRC meetings will contribute to their overall education in Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) and presents an opportunity to ECRs to network with peers, key figures in the CCS academic community and industry representatives.

Please email carys@ukccsrc.ac.uk or call 0114 215 7235 if you have any questions on the ECR Meeting Fund.

UKCCSRC ECR places at Pilot-scale Facilities Practical Training, 3-11 March 2016

UKCCSRC ECR places at Pilot-scale Facilities Practical Training, 3-11 March 2016

General Information

The UKCCSRC is pleased to open a call for six fully-funded places available for UKCCSRC Early Career Researcher members to attend the Pilot-scale Facilities Practical Training module offered by the University of Sheffield, including hands-on training at the UKCCSRC PACT core facility. The module will run from Thursday 3rd to Friday 11th March 2016.

Application instructions can be found at the foot of this page. Funding will cover attendance at the module plus travel and subsistence required for attendance. Please note that this funding is available to ECRs in addition to the two uses of the ECR Meeting Fund allowed in each year.

Module description

Title of Module: Pilot-scale Facilities Practical Training

This module will offer training that meet the needs of both academic research and wider industrial stakeholders and provide hand-on experience of operating pilot scale tests at the national UKCCSRC PACT facilities, and knowledge of simulation of advanced carbon capture technologies for power generation industry. The course will cover different capture technologies and relevant experimental facilities including their health and safety requirements. On completion of the module students will be able to design, conduct and analyse industrial experiments using large scale facilities for new CCS capture technology development and appreciate and be able to adhere to industrial health and safety practices.

Aims
This unit aims to offer training and experience of operating pilot scale tests at the UKCCSRC PACT facilities with instruction on the applications of CCS capture technology and power plant simulation. The UKCCSRC Education Task Force will develop the curriculum for new capture technology classes, ensuring that it meets both the academic and wider stakeholder needs including specific H&S training provided by the Health & Safety Laboratory (HSL) Buxton.

Learning outcomes
By the end of the unit, a candidate will be able to demonstrate the following learning outcomes appropriate of a Doctoral level:

  • Appreciate and be able to adhere to industrial health and safety practices necessary for carrying out industrial scale experiments of CCS capture technologies.
  • Understand the key scientific and engineering principles necessary to design, conduct and analyse industrial experiments using large scale facilities.
  • Be able to utilise team working skills to optimise team performance and outcomes.
    Understand the principles of simulating CCS capture processes.

Activities
Contact hours with students will primarily focus on participating in experiments (laboratory sessions) on pilot-scale combustion and capture facilities at PACT. This is will be preceded by instructional and interactive sessions on industrial H&S which are a prerequisite to conducting experimental work.

Contact hours will be complemented by private study firstly to review and understand introductory documentation sent by the course organiser prior to arrival on site and subsequently after the experiments to analyse and interpret experimental results and prepare project reports

Normally the project report should be submitted four weeks after completion of the on-site training, followed by a Presentation Day at the Centre where students will be presenting their work and assessed.

Assessment
The learning outcomes will be assessed through written reports (70%) up to 4,000 words and presentations (30%) summarising the activities and learning outcomes from the training. The report will be marked by at least two academics/RAs. A presentation day will be organised in principle at the DTC in Nottingham when students will be presenting their work. Staff and students from other collaborating universities will be invited to join and assess the students’ presentations. UKCCSRC ECRs who are awarded a funded place to attend the module must complete all assessments and submit these when requesting reimbursement of costs.
