CO2RE holds a £1 million Flexible Fund which will be used to fill in gaps and needs identified during the lifetime of the Programme. The fund will support work to address research and engagement gaps through three approaches.   

Innovations – research funding

Innovative new GGR approaches will be supported by an annual Pathfinders’ competition.
Information about the first two rounds of proposals is available below. ~ £600k total

Capacity building – secondments

Investments to build capacity are helping to build a new cohort of GGR expertise, facilitating a flow of people carrying ideas and knowledge into and out of the Hub, the Demonstrator projects and beyond – funded activities include funded secondments, establishing a new Future Leaders Network, workshops and skills development, with a focus on early careers. ~ £250k total

Engagement with stakeholders

Funding to support exchange across the sciences, arts and humanities with stakeholders and publics. ~ £150k total

A ‘Sandpit’ to help design a GGR Future Leaders Network was held on 17 Jan ’23 in Birmingham. We look forward to sharing updates about its development and launch in Spring.

At the heart of the fund sits a commitment to inclusivity and collaboration. We believe that best outcomes for the fund can only be achieved by working together with the broad community of interest, bringing people together to share expertise, insights and understandings helping us develop timely, necessary and appropriately shaped opportunities to work together to achieve the GGR we require. To help in this endeavour, we will be announcing regular opportunities to join us in activities and events to scope and design our funding instruments. Please look out for these on this page, in our newsletter and on Twitter.
The fund is managed by Imperial College London on behalf of CO2RE. For more information please contact the Fund Manager, Dr Paul Rouse.
