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 [email protected] or call 0114 215 7235 if you have any questions on the ECR Meeting Fund.
