We’re thrilled to be running another ECR Net Zero Conference in 2024, this time in collaboration with even more fantastic organisations working in the Net Zero space – C-DICE, CO2RE, EDI+, EDRC, ERA, IDRIC, IGNITE+, HI-ACT, Supergen Bioenergy Hub, SUSTAIN, TFI Network+, UKCCSRC, UKERC and UK-HyRES!

The conference will take place at the Birmingham Conference and Events Centre (Birmingham, B5 4EW), on Tuesday 27th – Wednesday 28th February 2024.  It will provide an opportunity for ECRs to meet and network with peers from different research organisations within the wider net zero research community, and build a more collaborative, multidisciplinary community.

The two days will include a mix of keynote speakers, parallel sessions (skills and topic based) and a networking dinner.  New to this year’s conference is the opportunity to present your work in our poster reception to stimulate discussion and find potential collaborative research pathways with fellow ECRs.

There is also an option to attend virtually. The event will not be fully hybrid, however, and only sessions taking place in the main room will be streamed.
