The UKCCSRC’s second open call for research proposals was launched on the 1st of February. Up to £2m will be made available to support the delivery of CCS research by UK academics.
In this call, the UKCCSRC is inviting proposals for fundamental and multidisciplinary Carbon Capture and Storage research projects that address research needs identified by the Advanced Power Generation Technology Forum (APGTF) and the DECC CCS Roadmap for Innovation and R&D. Proposals are expected to be between £100k and £300k in size but no fixed limits have been set.
The deadline for the submission of applications is 5pm on Monday31st March 2014. Interested parties will be able to submit proposals via the UKCCSRC website.
Funding decisions will be announced in mid-May 2014.
Members of all organisations eligible to receive funding from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) can receive support but proposals must be led by UKCCSRC members, who have established experience in the CCS field.
As well as giving financial support, the UKCCSRC will also help facilitate linkages between the project teams and the wider CCS research community and users.
Scottish Carbon Capture & Storage (SCCS) wholeheartedly welcomes today’s announcement by the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) that a Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) study contract is ready to sign for the White Rose commercial-scale carbon capture and storage (CCS) electricity project.
The UK remains well placed to lead in carbon capture and storage (CCS) commercialisation, and recent governmental funding commitments for CCS capitalise on the UK’s strong research and development base and geological capacity for storing carbon dioxide (CO2).
