Current postgraduate training is highly specialized and collaborations across disciplines are discouraged by largely incompatible frameworks, faculty/institutional/international barriers, as well as discipline cultures. Moreover, postgraduate training also suffers from a lack of engagement from end users and therefore, hampering knowledge transfer to industry and also knowledge gain from industrial research needs. To answer to this problem, the Centre for Innovation in Carbon Capture and Storage (CICCS) receiving major funding from the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council is developing a holistic approach to develop a postgraduate collaborative training programme that integrates science, engineering and end-users to facilitate the creativity and innovation of CCS responses to the global warming problem. A market assessment was conducted to collect data on the potential market for training in CCS. The results of this study are presented as well as the current training, research and outreach activities of the CICCS. (C) 2008 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved
