Research

We are providing the innovation and technology we don’t yet have.

Our research is grounded in three key areas:

Resources

We are understanding the resources we have available in meeting net zero.

Mitigation

We are asking if it’s possible to mitigate climate impacts by using science and engineering.

Transition

We are supporting the long-term just transition to a greener economy.

Research themes

Within these key areas are several research themes which focus and showcase the best of our research. Our core themes are areas where we have internationally leading critical mass across many individual researchers.

These are:
