Climate Change Research

The University of Birmingham is leading research to help mitigate and adapt to the risks and impacts associated with climate change


Our research explores how we can protect, preserve and restore biodiversity, through natural habitats and ecosystems.

Energy transitions

We are developing and applying the technological innovation, original thinking and new ways of working required to create sustainable energy solutions to support the regional, national and global transition to a net zero carbon economy.

Clean transport

We are challenging the transport sector’s existing technologies, processes and practices, changing how transport is designed, delivered and used for future generations.

Business, law and finance

We are partnering with business to investigate, develop and co-create robust and innovative solutions to achieve responsible business success.

Built environment

Our researchers are helping cities better balance economic, social and environmental needs and investigating how to re-engineer urban environments so that they are more liveable and resilient to major challenges.
