Science, politics, knowledge management, innovation and markets all play a role in climate change action, but what is the role of the University of Cambridge as an ‘anchor institution’ for these? Bringing together speakers spanning the worlds of research and policy, this series of events will explore how the multifaceted aspects of climate change action can come together to help us make the right decisions for the long run.

Networking and drinks will follow.


Professor Stephen Briggs, Senior Advisor, Earth Observation, European Space Agency, will be talking about A New Era for Climate Observations with a reponse from Professor Alan O'Neill, Emeritus Professor of Meteorology, University of Reading.
