The IEA Greenhouse Gas R&D Programme (IEAGHG) is an international collaborative research programme established in 1991 as an Implementing Agreement under the International Energy Agency (IEA). It funds research into carbon capture and storage (CCS), also known as CO2 capture and storage, or carbon sequestration.

IEAGHG studies and evaluates technologies that can reduce greenhouse gas emissions derived from the use of fossil fuels. The Programme aims to provide its members with definitive information on the role that technology can take in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The IEAGHG CCS summer school aims to provide students from diverse academic backgrounds with a broad understanding of the issues surrounding CCS and encourage their active participation in this area.

The 9th IEAGHG International Interdisciplinary CCS Summer School (2015) will be held in Perth, Australia. Hosted by the Australian CCS community, the School will be held at The University of Western Australia (UWA) in Perth Western Australia. The School will run from 6-12 December 2015.

Selected students will participate in this week long International Summer School with presentations and discussion led by international experts in the field of CCS. 

The programme covers the full chain of CCS; providing up-to-date information in each field; including technical information on capture technologies, storage site selection, capacity and modelling, wellbore integrity and transport; as well as other issues such as regulations, health and safety, and public communication. Time is also allocated for networking and for informal discussions with the assembled experts.
