Membership – Academic

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 three papers on their CCS research in academic journals in the past five 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:

  • being eligible to apply for UKCCSRC funding calls
  • citing UKCCSRC membership on CVs, applications, LinkedIn, etc
  • other ad hoc opportunities
