The Centre is part of the new All-Island Climate and Biodiversity Research Network (AICBRN).

This major initiative brings together leading research centres across the whole island of Ireland to tackle the climate and biodiversity emergency where a trans-national approach is essential.

Researchers from all of the centres across the network have come together to work with national, regional and local governments, communities and industry to effectively deliver solutions to climate, biodiversity and social challenges caused by global warming.

‘The ambition of the AICBRN is to develop a large-scale research and innovation initiative to improve public good policy and management decisions, underpin business and enterprise strategies and strengthen societal capacity to address the climate and biodiversity emergencies’

We will be investigating:

  • Clean energy solutions and how to economically implement these to achieve a socially just transition away from fossil fuels

  • Prevention of biodiversity loss, reversing degradation in ecosystems and how to make our natural environment more resilient to climate change

  • Protecting and enhancing agriculture in Ireland and looking to achieve negative carbon emissions

  • Improving climate predictions and the level of uncertainty to improve forecasting of adverse weather and flood risk

​The ambition of the AICBRN is to develop a large-scale research and innovation initiative to support policy and management decisions, underpin business and enterprise strategies and strengthen societal capacity to address the climate and biodiversity emergencies.

 The diversity of disciplinarity and expertise of members across the physical, natural and social sciences, engineering, and humanities enables this network to cooperatively undertake the essential fundamental and challenge-based research required for Ireland to successfully address the climate and biodiversity emergencies.
