Up to £5,000 is available per proposal to fund graduate students and post doctoral researchers. The exchanges will build new or strengthening existing collaborations between the two countries’ top researchers, share experimental facilities and exchange knowledge.

Prof. Jon Gibbins, UKCCSRC Director said, “the global scale of climate change demands global efforts in emission reduction research. This programme will allow talented UK researchers to build links with our Canadian colleagues, who are active in CCS. We anticipate this programme will establish cutting edge research collaborations which will advance CCS R&D and add value to both the UK and Canadian CCS research programmes.

"We at CMC are really excited about this program. Young researchers will be the ones to deliver breakthrough solutions to today's carbon management problems - but they won't do it working in isolation. Collaboration is a critical element in the innovation process and exchange programs like this one help our early career scientists build the relationships necessary for the development of ground-breaking, deployable technologies," said Dr. Steve Larter, CMC’s Scientific Director.
