Clean Carbon Sandpit event
Free Clean Carbon event with buffet lunch and networking plus tea and cakes during the afternoon.
We are keen to respond in a timely way to all funding calls and we believe it is important to make our funding applications reflect both the multidisciplinary nature of the challenge posed by anthropogenic CO2 in the atmosphere, and the full range of our carbon-related multidisciplinary research at Southampton. So whether you are interested in policy, health issues around air pollution, technologies for reducing carbon footprint, social behaviour to raise awareness, changing energy usage or developing sustainable new technologies, we want to hear from you.
