Imperial has outlined plans to transform the capital’s global response to climate change through a new collaboration with the Mayor of London.

Imperial College is to establish a world-leading centre for climate change innovation at its White City campus, driving the development of new technologies, businesses and jobs across London that will support a zero-carbon and climate resilient future. 

The Centre for Climate Change Innovation (CCCI), will be backed by a grant of up to £8.7 million from the Mayor of London, and Imperial plans to raise a further £25 million of funding to support the new Centre, which will be led by its Grantham Institute – Climate Change and the Environment.

“Climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing humanity. We urgently need new technologies to help us tackle this threat. Imperial is ideally positioned to be the catalysing force for a connected, global movement in climate change innovation,” said Professor Nick Jennings, Vice Provost (Research and Enterprise) at Imperial.
