Climate Exp0 is the first virtual conference organised by the COP26 Universities Network and the Italian University Network for Sustainable Development (RUS), sponsored by UK Research and Innovation, with support from the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference, also known as COP26, and Cambridge University Press.
Taking place 17-21 May 2021, six months prior to COP26, Climate Exp0 will showcase the latest thinking and most relevant UK and international research around five key themes: Adaptation and Resilience; Finance; Green Recovery; Mitigation Solutions; and Nature-based Solutions.
It will feature a range of speakers – from policymakers and academics, to practitioners and students – and seeks to:
- Raise the profile of key strategic themes and issues as evidenced through research;
- Provide evidence to constituted bodies and policymakers;
- Engage countries in building up their activity towards COP26;
- Create a legacy for Universities and Research Centres in support of the climate change research agenda and of the UK’s role as host for COP26.
Online, free, and open to all, it’s an opportunity to connect policy, academic and student audiences across the globe, and harness the power of virtual collaboration to help advance a resilient, zero-carbon world.
The Call for Submissions is open to researchers, students, industry, civil society, and policymakers and abstracts are accepted abstracts for individual presentations and poster presentations across each theme. Full information on how to submit can be found via the Climate Exp0 website. Deadline for submissions is 10 March.
