Imperial Podcast: UK knowledge economy performance and climate change report


In the latest edition, we discuss the latest IPPC report on climate change impacts with an Imperial climate change policy expert.

A researcher from the Business School explains a new report which explains the sometimes hidden assets that are actually making more of a difference to the economy than we might have thought.

The podcast is presented by Gareth Mitchell, a lecturer on Imperial's Science Communication MSc course and the presenter of Click Radio on the BBC World Service, with contributors from the Communications team.
