9-15 July 2023, hosted by International CCS Knowledge Centre, Regina, Canada 

Application deadline: 1st March

The target group for the Summer School is young scientists and researchers, e.g. PhD students with a background in engineering, geo-technologies, socio-economics. This can also include those in the early stages of their career within 5 years of graduation currently seeking a greater understanding of CCS. The Summer School programme covers every aspect of CCS and aims to present the most recent information available in each field, up to 50 students will attend.


Call for submission in Frontiers: Carbon dioxide removal: Perspectives from the social sciences and humanities 

Abstract Submission Deadline: 10 April 2023; Manuscript Submission Deadline 28 August 2023

The editors (Anders Hansson, Mathias Fridahl, Miranda Boettcher, Shinichiro Asayama) call for submissions on CDR stemming from perspectives within the social sciences and humanities. They encourage novel empirical and theoretical contributions on:

  • CDR-related policy design or analyses of recent policy developments at sub-national, national and international levels of governance, e.g., in context of climate targets and strategies, climate tipping points, mitigation deterrence or societal transformations.
  • Construction of knowledge in scientific discourse, e.g., critical reflections on the scenario/pathway literature and integrated assessment modeling, science communications, IPCC processes or science-policy relations.
  • Historical and contemporary experiences of CDR in different cultural, geographical and political contexts, e.g. case studies, experience from developing countries, equity and responsibility distribution in North-South relations or geopolitical implications.
  • Political and public debates on or controversies over CDR, e.g. using discourse theory or critical science and technology studies (STS) to analyse mass media or social media, scientific trends, ideological connections to CDR or shifting power relations.


Funding & secondments by CO2RE The Greenhouse Gas Removal Hub

Deadline: 12.00 noon, 6 February 2023

Pathfinders Call 2 (Winter 2023) – open: CO2RE is now inviting applications for new funding to research ocean or methane Greenhouse Gas Removal. Projects which strategically address part of a removal method (such as capture, purification, or novel approaches to storage or conversion) will be considered, as well as full-chain methods.

The demonstrator projects are investigating:

  • management of peatlands;
  • enhanced rock weathering;
  • use of biochar;
  • large-scale tree planting, or afforestation; and,
  • rapid scale-up of perennial bioenergy crops

This Pathfinders invitation for applications is an open call seeking to fund UK projects of up to one-year’s duration at a cost of up to £50,000 each.


Certification of carbon removals – EU rules (Commission adoption: Feedback Open)

Feedback period: 01 December 2022 – 07 February 2023

The EU commission initiative will propose EU rules on certifying carbon removals. It will develop the necessary rules to monitor, report and verify the authenticity of these removals. The aim is to expand sustainable carbon removals and encourage the use of innovative solutions to capture, recycle and store CO2 by farmers, foresters and industries. This represents a necessary and significant step towards integrating carbon removals into EU climate policies.

This adopted act is open for feedback for a minimum period of 8 weeks. All feedback received will be summarised by the European Commission and presented to the European Parliament and Council with the aim of feeding into the legislative debate.


Special Issue on Environmental Impacts of Ocean Alkalinity Enhancement – open for submissions

01 Dec 2022–30 Nov 2023

Biogeosciences opened a special issue on „Environmental impacts of ocean alkalinity enhancement, edited by Tyler Cyronak, Lydia Kapsenberg, Jaime Palter, Kai G. Schulz, and Patricia Grasse. This special issue explores a range of biological and ecological impacts associated with alkalinity enhancement and approaches for monitoring strategies in order to safely scale scientific research in the field. The target audience of this special issue includes not only the ocean alkalinity enhancement research community but also those involved in making decisions about the funding, permitting, and monitoring of potential field trials and pilot-scale studies. In keeping with our mission to publish all valid research, we consider negative and null results.


Networking community for NOPP marine CDR proposals

Deadline: Feb 28, 2023

The US National Oceanographic Partnership Program (NOPP) has opened a call for proposals on Marine Carbon Dioxide Removal (mCDR): Research and Development for Assessing Large Scale Carbon Removal and Local Scale Ocean Acidification Mitigation. To be eligible for this funding opportunity, each proposing team must be comprised of participants from at least two of the following three sectors:

  1. Academia (institutions of higher education)
  2. Private sector (nonprofit and for-profit non-governmental organizations)
  3. Government (federal, state, local, and tribal governments)

To facilitate cross-sectoral networking and the formation of new partnerships, ClimateWorks Foundation has created a networking resource for individuals who are leading proposals and seeking new partnerships as well as individuals interested in participating in a proposal and being discoverable.


Funding Opportunity: The Biochar Demonstrator Flexible Fund

Deadline: 3rd February 2023

The Biochar Demonstrator Flexible Fund is open for bids to support early career researcher (ECR) gap-filling biochar projects, with awards of up to £40,000 (80% fEC) to cover salary and other research costs. All bids must be supported by an incumbent UK academic (PI). For more information please see the operational guidelines. Proposals should use the application form available on this page.


NOAA: Carbon dioxide removal as a tool to mitigate climate change

NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) seeks comments on a draft research strategy: NOAA is releasing a new strategy and inviting the public to join upcoming listening sessions that will guide the agency’s potential role in an important part of understanding and addressing climate change — carbon dioxide removal. The public is invited to read the report, review all 11 carbon dioxide removal techniques and strategies, evaluate NOAA’s proposed role in carbon dioxide removal research and provide comments (a Federal Register Notice with instructions for submitting comments will be published shortly).

Virtual listening sessions will be held:

  • Monday, Dec 12 at 3 PM ET. 
  • Wednesday, Dec 14 at 10 AM ET.
  • Wednesday, Dec 14 at 5 PM ET.

Register for any of the above listening sessions at https://sciencecouncil.noaa.gov/Draft-CDR-Strategy.


Carbon Technology Research Foundation

CTRF’s focus is on supporting people and institutions working to develop processes that have their roots in nature, with the potential to be scaled significantly to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and help stop climate change. Throughout 2022 and early 2023, they will be identifying high quality, credible research institutions, individuals and projects for funding to be part of the CTRF portfolio launch in 2023. 


The 2023 OpenAir Carbon Removal Challenge – A student innovation challenge for carbon removal technologies (Applications Open)

The 2023 OpenAir Carbon Removal Challenge is a worldwide contest for students to gain hands-on experience with new technologies that capture excess carbon directly from our atmosphere, soil, and waters. With guidance from researchers and industry experts, student teams will design and build creative, open-source solutions to the carbon pollution problem. The very best approaches will be selected for an in-person showcase at New York University in April 2023.
