BEIS launches Climate Services for a Net Zero Resilient World (CS-N0W)
A new programme will produce world-class research and advice to help the UK deliver on net zero targets.19/08/2021 By BGS Press
A consortium of universities and research institutes, including BGS, is to deliver a £5 million research programme, CS-N0W, as the UK Government steps up its efforts to prepare and protect against the impacts of climate change.
The four-year programme, led by Ricardo and funded by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS), will produce world-class research and transformative advice, digital data and tools that will provide cutting-edge scientific knowledge to inform the Government’s strategy for delivering a thriving, low-carbon, greener future.
‘This is a very exciting and timely programme addressing the impacts of climate change on our society. BGS is proud to be working to enable a low carbon economy and greener future for all.’
Kate Royse, BGS Chief Digital Officer.
