The EPSRC Engineering Net Zero (ENZ) showcase will take place in the ARC from June 21st-23rd 2022. This event will bring together researchers, industry leaders and policy makers to reflect on and raise awareness of the EPSRC investments made in this space, continue the conversations that took place at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26), highlight how EPSRC activities link to the sustainable development goals, and show the EPSRC response to the outcomes of COP26 and how EPSRC-supported research and innovation can substantially contribute to net zero solutions. The week’s activities will be focussed around four thematic areas:

  • towards net zero energy
  • solutions for a greener industry and urbanisation
  • our green future
  • delivering zero emissions transport and mobility solutions
