Since our creation in 2012, we have supported, strengthened and integrated the UK CCS community. The excellence of the UK research base is internationally recognised, with many of our 300+ academic members collaborating with CCS organisations across the world. With six memorandums of understanding signed across the globe and numerous international collaborations, the UKCCSRC is an integral part of the UK remaining a world leader in CCS technology.
We’ve funded more than 30 projects to date across the spectrum of CCS research, supporting the drive towards an affordable, low carbon future for the UK. We strive to make research freely available for the long term to maximise the value obtained from publicly funded information.
With a membership of 1,400, and two conferences a year, we bring together the community to aid collaboration and knowledge sharing. By funding travel for development opportunities, and providing training, we ensure early career researchers have the skills and networks to keep the UK at the forefront of CCS development.
We have become a vital link with industry, aligning CCS research with business needs to secure an attainable economic future for the technology. In addition, by providing written and oral evidence to Government committees, and researching public attitudes towards CCS, the UKCCSRC informs policy makers on how CCS contributes to meeting the UK’s climate change obligations.
