Every one or two years, GERG hosts a competition which attempts to highlight the work currently being done by postgraduate students in the field of gas research. These success stories serves to illustrate how a new generation of researchers is working hard to establish gas as a key enabler of a new decarbonised energy system.

The call for proposals is now open!

9th GERG Young Researchers’ Awards

in association with EGATEC 2019, European Gas Technology Conference

Are you doing a postgraduate research project in the field of renewable or other low-carbon gas? Why not promote your project in front of a high-level audience and possibly win a substantial prize?

 

The European Gas Research Group (GERG) offers Young Researchers’ Awards to early career European researchers who have displayed a commitment to excellence in scientific research and in creating solutions for the future of Energy.

The Young Researchers’ event promotes interaction between European Universities and Research Centres, on R&D topics related to Gas in the Energy system. The key objectives are: encourage a dialogue between industry practitioners and academia, raise awareness, and enhance cooperation between our different communities.

The 2019 event will take place in association with the EGATEC Conference on 6-8 November in Groningen, where an audience of between 150 and 250  industry executives and policy makers is expected. The Conference talks will be divided in six themes : Greening the Gas, Gas Utilisation, Sector Integration, Cleaning Energy / Methane Emissions, Decarbonising Natural Gas and Mobility. The candidates are encouraged to submit their project in one of these themes.
