Consortium Newid Hinsawdd Cymru / Climate Change Consortium of Wales


Consortium Newid Hinsawdd Cymru / Climate Change Consortium of Wales
The universities of Aberystwyth, Bangor, Cardiff and Swansea launched the Climate Change Consortium of Wales (C3W) in November 2009. This is a £4 million initiative financed by the Welsh Assembly Government (WAG) through the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales (HEFCW). Together with additional support from the Countryside Council for Wales and substantial investment from the four universities, C3W is set to considerably enhance the climate science profile of Wales. The Consortium has been developed by a group of internationally respected academics in collaboration with staff in a wide range of disciplines across the four universities. These disciplines cover the impact of climate change on land, sea, atmosphere and cryosphere, as well as its social consequences. Visit the C3W website


The four universities are collaborating in order to:
•develop the infrastructure for climate change research in Wales to world-class standards
•create new interdisciplinary and multi-institutional research projects
•build on the existing strengths to provide a critical mass of researchers and maximise the potential for collaboration across Wales
•promote dissemination, educational and outreach activities that raise the international profile of climate-change research in Wales
•contribute to the formulation of climate change policy within Wales, the UK and the wider international community.
