Scotland’s Centre of Expertise on Climate Change - ClimateXChange

Scotland’s Centre of Expertise on Climate Change - ClimateXChange – is a collaborative initiative between sixteen of Scotland’s leading research and higher education institutions. We do research on climate change directly linked to the Scottish policy agenda. Our members provide evidence base for Scottish Government policy through timely and objective research evidence and expert advice.
ClimateXChange has a call-down service to respond to policy questions raised by Scottish Government policy teams. We also work in partnership to plan our projects for the Scottish Government and its agencies to their policy timeline. Combined, these two approaches place evidence at the heart of policy development.
