The Grantham Institute – Climate Change and the Environment has been running innovation activities for almost a decade. We were a founding partner of the Climate Knowledge Innovation Community (Climate-KIC). This resulted in the development of a number of innovation programmes, including the Climate-KIC Accelerator, Climate Launchpad, The Journey, and many others. We have recently embarked on an exciting new phase for our innovation activities, with the launch of The Greenhouse and a pivotal role in the forthcoming Centre for Climate Change Innovation.

Join one of the programmes delivered by the Grantham Institute to fast-track your green business and become part of one of the world’s largest climate change innovation communities. The programmes are open to anyone with a passion for climate change, with further eligibility criteria enclosed.
