Grantham Institute is now launching an exciting new experimental activity at the very start of the climate innovation pipeline: The Climate Solutions Catalyst. The objective of the programme is to test the hypothesis that the UK university sector has already made discoveries and inventions that can help tackle climate change, if only they can be found and supported properly. Working collaboratively with as many other UK universities as possible, and a full range of stakeholders, this two-year trial programme will try and unearth neglected climate solutions from the full breadth and depth of the UK research community, and then test potential support offers for these solutions and the researchers and innovators that discovered them.
This project has the potential to have significant impact in tackling climate change and improving the climate innovation pipeline in the UK and, eventually, more widely.
We are looking to for someone with strategic vision, management and analytical skills and the natural curiosity to lead this programme.
