He emphasised how beneficial the reception is to all attendees, as it enables students to meet and discuss what they have heard and learnt at GHGT-12 with their peers. It also allows then to connect with past students and selected industry experts which will allow them to help create their future careers within the CCS world and enables them to create new business contacts.

Tim Dixon (IEAGHG) gave a welcome to all attendees at the Reception and dove strajosirt into a brief overview of the Summer School Series. He followed with a quick look at some brilliant photos from past Schools, including line dancing at the 2014 School in Austin, Texas, the infamous coach breakdown disaster of 2013 and the resultant public engagement at one of the popular pubs in the middle of nowhere in the UK.

The Reception presentations were concluded with a talk from Sam Neades from IEAGHG. She gave a brief overview of the last two schools, since the previous Student Reception, along with some really interesting photos of activities that were undertaken throughout the weeks. She finished with explaining how students could apply for the school and she directed them towards the various IEAGHG and Summer School social media outlets, with the aim of encouraging all students to keep in contact with one another – and, with IEAGHG.

Overall, the Student Reception was a great success. Students really seemed to enjoy themselves and we hope to welcome some of them to one of our future schools.
