Event description

Description

The Director of the UK Carbon Capture and Storage Research Centre (UKCCSRC) gives a public lecture at the University of Southampton. Plus - we showcase 2 more Clean Carbon Research Themes: Capture and Reduction.

There will also be a 'Speed Dating' slot. If you are interested in taking part, the challenge is to pitch your research in 3 minutes. Email the group's Interdisciplinary research Coordinator, Frances Clarke (fmc@soton.ac.uk) if you would like to book a slot in this segment.

The aim of the UKCCSRC is to provide a national focal point for Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) research and development in order to bring together the user community and academics to analyse problems, devise and carry out world-leading research and share delivery, thus maximising impact. A key priority is to help stimulate the UK economy by driving an integrated research programme focused on increasing the contribution of CCS to a low-carbon energy system for the UK.
