UKCCSRC Spring Conference 2024 (Manchester, 27-28 March 2024)

We’re looking forward to hosting our Spring Conference on 27th-28th March 2024, at the Schuster Building, University of Manchester, M13 9PL.

At the conference we will be hearing from industry CCS stakeholders within the clusters, projects and from CCS research projects with strong industrial links, as well as the exciting progress that is being made in CCS deployment overseas. There will, of course, also be plenty of time to network and connect with CCS stakeholders over the course of the two days.

The conference will run from 11.00am on Wednesday 27th until 2pm on Thursday 28th March.  Wednesday will be industry focused and Thursday will be internationally focused.  See the agenda below for more details (speakers to follow).

Registrations are now open – book here!

The ECR Meeting Fund has been opened to support attendance at this conference, as well as at the ECR Awayday preceding this conference on Tuesday 26th March.
