As climate and environmental debates enter a crucial period of public and political discussion, there is a clear need for solid scientific evidence to inform future policies.
The Grantham Institute’s mission is to drive climate and environment-related research and translate this knowledge into real-world impact. Harnessing the tremendous research strengths across all four main areas of the College – engineering, natural sciences, medicine and business – the Institute addresses the entire spectrum of climate change and environment related issues, from fundamental understanding of climate processes to environmental impacts, mitigation technologies and policies.
