Outreach and networking
The Centres' outreach and networking activities with local, national and international partners harness a wide range of expertise from across the University within the field of climate change research. The purpose of the group is to help foster a culture of collaboration through building multidisciplinary approaches using expertise both within the University and with links to local, national and international educational, industrial, policy and other stakeholders.
The Centre for Climate Change Research and the University is an active partner of COP26 Universities Network.
Outreach and networking sector partners
We work closely with a large of partners in many sectors including the following:
- local government authorities
- transport operators
- government departments
- data and analytics.
