Greenhouse Gas Removal Demonstrators workshop


16 October 2019 (Wednesday)

NERC on behalf UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) are inviting applications to attend a workshop for the Strategic Priorities Fund (SPF) Greenhouse Gas Removal Demonstrators programme in London (venue tbc) on Wednesday 16 October 2019.

The GGR-D Programme will assess sustainable routes for large-scale greenhouse gas removal from the atmosphere. Through this programme, there will be two main calls:

  • A call to establish GGR Demonstrator facilities to test and pilot a suite of GGR approaches at a scale that will enable a detailed understanding of the issues surrounding the implementation of the approach at a large scale. 
  • A call for a Directorate Hub, which will provide an overarching co-ordination role across the suite of inter-disciplinary programme activities, with specific focus on environmental, economic, social, cultural, ethical, legal and governance issues. The Hub will have a strong research function, working with the Demonstrators to provide underpinning research; provide capacity building and co-ordination across the programme; and actively engage with business communities.

The meeting aims to further communicate the remit and objectives of the programme, specifically the forthcoming research calls and the intended roles of the Demonstrators and Directorate Hub. Attendance at the workshop is not mandatory for applicants to the research calls.

If you wish to attend, please complete the online registration form. The closing date for applications is 16:00 on Monday 7 October 2019.

With limited space available, if the event is oversubscribed UKRI reserve the right to manage attendance to ensure an appropriate balance of expertise and institutional representation. Applicants will be advised on whether their application is successful by no later than Wednesday 9 October 2019.
