Diversity in energy research – Whole Systems Networking Fund Consultative Workshop – Thu, 1 July 2021 10:30 – 12:00 BST

The UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC) carries out world-class research into sustainable future energy systems. UKERC is funded by the Research Councils UK Energy Programme.

UKERC’s commitment to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) is active and ongoing. Historically, energy research has been a homogenous discipline. They want to widen participation and bring new, diverse voices into the conversation, attracting talent from a wealth of backgrounds to ensure the academic community truly reflects society and benefits from the abundance of knowledge within it.    They intend to run two calls for proposals, the purpose of this workshop is to inform these calls, as they’d like to ask the broader energy research community how the fund can best be used to maximise opportunities for diversity.

This is a fantastic opportunity to help shape UKERC’s research and EDI agenda.   Please register your interest through Eventbrite here.
