The Climate Transformations Research Cluster is led by MSSI and facilitates research and engagement on a socially-just transition to a zero-carbon society. Climate change is a complex social and technical problem that requires interdisciplinary research efforts. The Cluster cultivates a network of cross-disciplinary climate change researchers across the University. It is also a point of connection for climate change practitioners, researchers, and the broader public.

Our objectives

  • Strengthen relations within and between Faculties and Research Institutes on sustainability research.
  • Create a network of cross-disciplinary climate change & sustainability researchers for collaborative research grant development.
  • Connect researchers at the University to external research funding partners (academic, industry and government).
  • Provide a portal and focal point for climate change and sustainability practitioners, the public, and academics both at and beyond the University.
  • Support research training and early career researchers at the University.
