Early Career Researcher Forum 

Supergen Net Zero Conference

The Early Career Researcher Forum is held on Wednesday 1 September 9am-12am.

Curated and led by our Supergen Early Career Researchers, this session will consist of three rounds of quickfire panel discussions which focus on greening the economy and society, the future of sustainable transport, and securing a global transition to clean energy.

The Supergen programme commands a large share of the UK Research and Innovation energy programme funding, covering different sectors such as solar, bioenergy, offshore renewables, hydrogen, energy networks and energy storage, and is well positioned to interact with stakeholders to provide comprehensive scientific information to support policymaking in the run up to COP26.

Ahead of COP26, the Supergen Hubs/Networks will be convening online at the Supergen Net Zero Conference during 1-3 September, exploring the role of energy research in the pathway to net zero. Over the course of the three days we will hear from the Supergen Hubs/Netowrks who will be showcasing their research, as well as holding cross-cutting panel discussions exploring topics such as equality, diversity and inclusion in energy research, international perspectives on Supergen work, our early career researcher activities, and outlining the policy implications of Supergen research for COP26.

Join us on 1-3 September to explore how our research is delivering net zero and hear our vision for the future of sustainable power.

Registration is free via Eventbrite.
