Getting together with other faculties, sharing expertise
Getting together with other faculties, sharing expertise


To support such collaboration we are holding a 'sandpit' event where we can brainstorm ideas and find out what colleagues from other faculties are doing in the Clean Carbon area. The event starts with a buffet lunch before moving on to the brainstorming activities and short presentations. Click on the download link below for a list of the calls we want people to consider.

Event Programme:

We are keen to respond in a timely way to all funding calls and we believe it is important to make our funding applications reflect both the multidisciplinary nature of the challenge posed by anthropogenic CO2 in the atmosphere, and the full range of our carbon-related multidisciplinary research at Southampton. So whether you are interested in policy, health issues around air pollution, technologies for reducing carbon footprint, social behaviour to raise awareness, changing energy usage or developing sustainable new technologies, we want to hear from you.

Check out the programme details below. Tea/coffee and cakes will be available during the afternoon.
