ERC Net Zero Conference 2024

27-28 February 2024 – Registration now open

This two-day conference will bring together early career researchers (ECRs) from across the energy and net zero community. It will include a mix of keynote speakers, parallel sessions (skills-based and topic-based) and a networking dinner. It is hosted by Bioenergy Supergen, C-DICE/ERA, CO2RE, EDI+, EDRC & HI-ACT, UK-HyRES, IDRIC, IGNITE+, SUSTAIN, UKCCSRC and UKERC.

The aim of the conference is to provide opportunities for ECRs from the UK’s major energy and net-zero research organisations to network with peers, foster new collaborations and gain valuable career and development skills. The event will take place in person at the Birmingham Conference & Events Centre, with an option to attend many of the sessions virtually.
