What makes this event beneficial to all ECRs?

All ECRs who submit an abstract will be given the option of having their abstract and contact information uploaded to the UKCCSRC website.  We believe this measure would effectively improve the visibility of your work, help to develop your potential network and very importantly, there is no cost to you at all.

Besides the two ECRs, Dr. Owain Tucker, who is the Global Deployment Leader for CCS & CCUS in Shell, will also share his expertise to cover the industrial aspects of CCS.  Both the latest research work and the valuable practical experience shall be presented in this webinar to ensure the audiences will greatly benefit from this.     

The two selected presentations will be sent to Dr. Tucker in advance of the webinar, and the authors will receive feedback on content and layout of the presentations, with a view to improve the overall quality of the webinar.

If you are selected to speak at the webinar

We are happy to cover the selected speaker’s expense travelling to Edinburgh with a maximum allowance of £110.  A lunch, together with the industrial speaker, will be provided to ensure that there is time to discuss areas of interest in advance of the webinar.
