The UKRI Net Zero DRI scoping project team 

Partnering up to reach net zero 

To celebrate our collaborations with leading universities and institutions, the team released an article detailing our project partners during Net Zero Week. This also allowed us to spread awareness of our work within the community and to reaffirm the importance of the net zero target given the climate emergency.  

Net Zero Week webinar 

Communications Manager Poppy Townsend raised the profile of the project with a presentation at the internal UKRI Wednesday Webinar, you can watch the video below or view the slides here. As explained in the webinar, the project’s ambition is to create a well-evidenced, holistic roadmap to enable the UKRI to reach net zero with its digital research infrastructure (DRI) by 2040.  

Recording from an internal UKRI webinar about the project. 
We want to build a community of experts who can contribute to the project, please encourage your colleagues to subscribe to this mailing list
We would also like to collaborate with the UKRI’s Medical Research Council (MRC) and Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) to fill in blind spots within our immediate community, as well as to ensure we are hearing from people with relevant expertise across all demographics, be it age, gender, race or stage of employment. 

Upcoming Interim Report 

Our project’s Interim Report is due for publication at the end of July. The report includes an Executive Summary of our findings so far from a far-reaching literature survey, including initial recommendations for achieving our net zero ambition. 

Updates on the release date and review process will be shared @CedaNews on twitter and on the net-zero-dri website. 

Summer Placement Students 

This summer the Net Zero team is joined by two undergraduate physics students, Lucy Woodward and Sophie Mosselmans, who are working on communications for the project. 

“I’m having a very enjoyable, interesting and fulfilling experience at STFC so far,” comments Lucy. “Climate change and science communication are two key interests of mine, so it feels really good to be learning so much about those topics and to be able to contribute to the work being done here.” 

Some of their work includes updating the website to make information on the project more accessible and engaging. If you’d like to request any information to be added to the website, such as links to websites, get in touch by emailing

You can also follow us on Twitter to stay updated on the progress behind the scenes!
