DecarboN8 Launch Event, Leeds (hosted by DecarboN8)

The UK Government has committed to reducing climate change emissions to ‘Net Zero’ by 2050. This is a huge challenge for the transport sector, which accounts for over a quarter of UK domestic greenhouse gas emissions and has not managed to reduce its emissions over recent years.

The DecarboN8 network will bring together researchers, industry and government to designing solutions which can be deployed rapidly and at scale.

Register now and save the date for the launch of the DecarboN8 Research Network!

Over the next few weeks we will publish further details about the event including confirming speakers.

Be the first to hear more: register for the launch event now and sign up to our newsletter to receive regular updates about our research, programme of events, and upcoming funding opportunities.
