Flexible Funding 2020 awards announced

The UKCCSRC is pleased to announce the proposals that were awarded funding in our recent Flexible Funding 2020 call, which closed in February 2020. The call was for proposals to a fixed budget amount up to £30k, for which grants would run for a period of three to six months.  Following a rigorous assessment process by independent reviewers reporting to the UKCCSRC Board, a total of £232,992 was awarded to 8 successful proposals.

The successful applicants are:

The UKCCSRC invited proposals for CCS research that address:

  • The technical, economic and social transition to net-zero, including research related to hydrogen production with CCS
  • Seed funding for a piece of work that could lead to a larger bid to other sources of CCS funding later, e.g. a responsive mode application. [But noting that bid preparation in and of itself can’t be funded and that, to avoid duplication, projects should not include work that the Industrial Decarbonisation Research and Innovation Centre would be able to fund]
  • Research linked to Mission Innovation priority research directions

For further information, including exact amounts awarded and details on the process of the initial call, see the Flexible Funding 2020 page, which contains links to each individual project page.
