We are excited to be hosting our next UKCCSRC conference as a face-to-face event (subject to COVID related guidance) in Sheffield and see many of you in person for the first time in over 2 years.

The Spring conference will focus on building capacity for CCS deployment and we will be hearing from speakers from the UK on their ongoing capacity initiatives, from the clusters on their latest capacity development plans as well as from the UKCCSRC core and flexible funded research programmes.

Face-to-face registrations are now closed, however you can still register below to attend virtually for the keynotes, plenary and parallel sessions. Please contact for any queries.

If you are a UKCCSRC ECR you will be able to apply for the ECR meeting fund to support your travel to attend. Applications to the ECR meeting fund are now closed.
