CO2 capture and storage (CCS) is considered a serious option for climate change mitigation strategies. In the first CCS projects developed, public resistance has appeared to be a potential showstopper for implementation. Therefore, the NearCO2 project has provided essential ingredients for effective communication and public involvement strategies related to CCS projects. Within the dissemination Work Package of the project, two workshops have been organised in London and Madrid, with the prime objective to inform (communication experts within) project developers about the key out-comes, discuss their merits, and explore needs for further research and implementation implications of the recommendations. This report summarises the workshops’ outcomes.
