About the Tyndall Centre

Our Vision

We provide evidence to inform society’s transition to a sustainable low-carbon and climate-resilient future.

The Tyndall Centre is a partnership of universities bringing together researchers from the social and natural sciences and engineering to develop sustainable responses to climate change. We work with leaders from the public and private sectors to promote informed decisions on mitigating and adapting to climate change.

“Above all, we undertake robust and independent research to identify the challenges and opportunities presented by climate change and inform open and transparent decisions that best serve society” (link to full vision)

About the Tyndall Centre: The Tyndall Centre was founded in 2000 to conduct cutting edge, interdisciplinary research, and provide a conduit between scientists and policymakers. With nearly 200 members ranging from PhD researchers to Professors, the Tyndall Centre represents a substantial body of the UK’s climate change expertise from across the scientific, engineering, social science and economic communities.

The Tyndall Centre has since 2000 significantly advanced the fundamental analysis of emission reduction from all major energy sectors, the understanding of climate impacts, risks, and adaptation options, the public perceptions of climate change, and the governance of climate negotiations and policymaking. From 2000 to 2010 the Tyndall Centre was core-funded to a total of £19m by the Natural Environment Research Council, the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council, and the Economic and Social Research Council. In the years since core funding came to end, Tyndall partners receive several million per year in project funding, including from public and private consultations on how to respond to climate change.
