Biennial Ocean Visions Summit & Call for abstracts

April 4-6, 2023, at the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta or online

„Summit participants will share and discuss cutting-edge advancements in ocean sciences, engineering, policy, governance, and economics that support trajectory-changing solutions to the dangerous climate impacts on the ocean within 7-10 years.“

Ocean Vision is currently soliciting abstracts. Abstracts should focus on existing and emerging problems at the intersection of the ocean and climate crises, and current and potential solutions that can be effectively implemented – as well as anticipating newer problems as these crises intensify. Abstracts should fall within one or more of the five program tracks:

  • Ocean-Based Contributions to Global Decarbonization
  • Ocean-Based Contributions to Carbon Dioxide Removal
  • Ocean Ecosystem Regeneration
  • Human Adaptation to a Changing Ocean
  • Building a Global Community of Solvers at the Ocean-Climate Nexus

The deadline for submitting abstracts is October 26, 2022. The full meeting program and schedule will be published in early February.


Ocean Visions Summit 2023: Innovating Solutions at the Ocean-Climate Nexus

April 4-6, 2023, in Atlanta, Georgia

The next Ocean Visions Summit will be held from April 4-6, 2023, in Atlanta, Georgia. This will predominantly be an in-person event, but with a modified virtual component. Contributions to the Summit program can be made by applying to chair a session within one of the five tracks: 1) Ocean-Based Contributions to Global Decarbonization, 2) Ocean-Based Contributions to Carbon Dioxide Removal, 3) Ocean Ecosystem Regeneration, 4) Human Adaptation to a Changing Ocean, and 5) Building a Global Community of Solvers at the Ocean-Climate Nexus. Applications should be submitted by 9/30/2022, Ocean Visions will notify candidates by 10/21/2022.


The Novo Nordisk Foundation CO2 Research Center: Call for proposals

Pre-Proposals:  October 14, 2022; Full proposal: December 2nd, 2022

The Novo Nordisk Foundation CO2 Research Center announces this broad Request for Proposals in four areas to complement ongoing research at CORC. Projects in Areas 1-3 should be for up to 3 years and a maximal budget of up to 7.3 million DKK, & Projects in Area 4 are for up to 1 year and a total budget of 2.5 million DKK, all including bench fee, technical and administrative support.

  • Area 1: Conversion of CO2-derived carbon to materials with advanced properties
  • Area 2: New approaches of CO2 capture from dilute sources and conversion for storage or use at scale
  • Area 3: New approaches for developing CO2 capture by inexpensive units that work at household/community-level
  • Area 4: Exploratory or proof-of-concept research


CO2RE Funding & secondments

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 (~ £600k total), Capacity building (~ £250k total) and Engagement with stakeholders (£150k total). The fund is managed by Imperial College London on behalf of CO2RE. For more information please contact the Fund Manager, Dr Paul Rouse.


Frontier’s next purchase cycle

Deadline: September 2, 2022 by 10pm ET

Frontier looks for permanent carbon removal solutions that have the potential to be low-cost and high-volume in the future, even if they’re not today. To support technologies at different stages of development, Frontier deploy funds by purchasing carbon removal through various tracks. Thus, Frontiers has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for their Fall 2022 carbon removal purchase cycle.


Special Issue Call – Mitigation Deterrence and Carbon Removal in the Age of Net Zero

Deadline Abstract submission: September 15th

By POLLEN – Political Ecology Network: This is a call for papers that examine how the focus on net zero and carbon removal in current climate governance changes the dynamics of mitigation deterrence and climate delay. It invites contributions that in one way or another engage with empirical examples where (the promise of) carbon removal results in mitigation deterrence and delay.


Marine CDR potential session at YOUMARES – Conference for young marine researchers

Abstract submission deadline extended: 12th August

YOUMARES conference: 11 – 14th October 2022; Museum für Naturkunde, Berlin (Germany); on-site, but also as a hybrid event

A session 10 on „Managing the Ocean ́ s Carbon Dioxide Removal Potential: Effectiveness, Verifiability and Ecosystem Impacts“ will be organised by Leila Kittu and Nicolás Sánchez, PhD candidates at GEOMAR (Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research, Germany). They are calling for submissions for an abstract or poster  to abstract@youmares.org that will be presented on-site and online for virtual attendees. YOUMARES is an international conference for young scientists working in any ocean-related field. It brings together participants from all over the world and provides a stage for an interdisciplinary community of young early career researchers – bachelor, master and PhD students – and young ocean enthusiasts.


Session at AGU: GC039 – Exploring Ocean Alkalinity Enhancement: Theory, practice, models, and measurements at a new frontier in marine carbon dioxide removal

In this session at the 2022 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting, the conveners invite submissions addressing potential applications of OAE at large (global) and small (local) scales, including discussions of: OAE theory or natural analogues; analyses of the efficiency, scalability, and durability of OAE; results from field-trials or large-scale tank or mesocosm experiments; possible co-benefits (such as ocean acidification mitigation) and potential risks (e.g., trace metal shock) that result from OAE approaches; co-benefits of pairing OAE with other CDR approaches; and proposed techniques for monitoring, reporting, and verifying impacts of OAE projects. Ultimately, the goal is to provide the AGU community an overview of the open questions OAE research that define the method’s promise and challenges.

The abstract submission deadline is 3 August 2022 (23:59 EDT/03:59 +1 GMT).


Session at AGU: B046 – Science-based Carbon Removal Strategies, Monitoring, Measurements, Reporting and Verification across Terrestrial, Atmospheric, Oceanic and Societal Dimensions

At the 2022 American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting, a session will organised on CDR strategies. The conveners welcome presentations on nature- and/or technology-based research and approaches that could inform innovative and timely strategies for multi-agency (U.S. government) collaborations and partnerships with the non-federal sector (e.g., foundations, industries, universities, states). The focus should be on the scientific basis for carbon monitoring, measurements, reporting and verification (MMRV) for effective and efficient CDR strategies with embedded societal considerations. The conference will be held in person in Chicago, US, as well as online from 12 to 16 December 2022.

The abstract submission deadline is 3 August 2022 (23:59 EDT/03:59 +1 GMT).
