Academic Membership

Academics active in CCS research form the academic membership of the UKCCSRC. 

Academic Membership will normally be open to all UK academics named as investigators on UKRI grants for CCS research, or CCS grants from other sources (e.g. EU, InnovateUK, BEIS) whose outputs can be publicly shared and contributed to the UKCCSRC. Membership will last for the period of the contributed grant plus 3 years.  Project funders other than the UKRI or BEIS may be required to confirm that this linkage with UKCCSRC is acceptable. Academic membership will also be extended to individuals who may not hold grants but have published 3 papers on their CCS research in academic journals in the past 5 years.

For Early Career Researchers, we have a separate ECR Membership that includes benefits aligned to the needs of our ECR community.

The benefits of Academic Membership include:

  • Opportunities to attend closed UKCCSRC general and specialist meetings.
  • Preferential access to UKCCSRC facilities.
  • Early access to UKCCSRC research programme outputs.
  • Information on UKCCSRC member bids for research funding and access to proposal preparation workshops.
  • Preferential access to UKCCSRC support for participation in national and international capacity building and community building activities.
  • Participation in UKCCSRC responses to consultations and other collective expert evidence activities.

Further Information:

  1. UKCCSRC research outputs transmitted to members will be in the form of presentations and networking at meetings, internal reports etc.
  2. All UKCCSRC members will be informed of CCS funding opportunities and invited to attend any UKCCSRC workshops to form a bidding team (or teams).
  3. Participation in activities such as UK overseas missions, funded representation of UKCCS research at meetings and other forums, specialist workshops, etc will be preferentially allocated to UKCCSRC members.
