This Autumn, IDRIC is bringing together academics and industry to share the outcomes of IDRIC’s research so far, discuss industry’s research and innovation needs and lay the groundwork for new collaborative partnerships.

In the coming months, IDRIC will be launching calls for:

  • a second wave of research projects focussed on delivering impact in the industrial clusters
  • a secondment scheme to facilitate exchange of expertise
  • an ongoing flexible funding mechanism to respond to pressing industry needs

Collaboration of industry and research within and across all of the UK’s Clusters is key to IDRIC achieving its decarbonisation goals. We are keen that as many organisations as possible are able to take advantage of funding streams and meet potential partners.

You can sign up to our Regional Cluster Meetings here:

Funded through the UKRI SPF Greenhouse Gas Removal Demonstrators (GGR-D) ProgrammeCO2RE will co-ordinate the Programme and conduct solutions-led research to evaluate a balanced portfolio of economically, socially and environmentally scalable GGR options, with associated policy design, engagement and outreach. This will enable the UK to lead internationally on achieving global netzero emissions, consistent with the Paris Agreement. Find out more about what we do below.

Join them for a 1-day “Sandpit” 3 Oct in Leeds where you will have the opportunity to shape a new funding opportunity.
