The Priestley International Centre for Climate also runs a monthly interdisciplinary lunchtime seminar series. See Climate Exchange Seminar Series

SRI, Priestley & CCCEP hosted Seminar Abstract The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reviews scientific literature on climate change in an attempt to make scientific knowledge about climate change accessible to a wide audience that includes policy makers. Documents produced by the IPCC are subject to negotiations in plenary sessions, which can be frustrating…
Our world is warming. The effects are far reaching, for all life forms. Coral reefs, in particular, are being devastated by climate change, with once vibrant marine ecosystems bleached and dying due to rising sea temperatures. The Priestley International Centre for Climate and University of Leeds Cultural Institute are pleased to present the UK premiere…
Information Session hosted by the Priestley International Centre for Climate and water@leeds Tender-based contract research from government departments, companies, national parks, local authorities etc. provide an alternative route for funding exciting, demand-driven research. They open opportunities to make connections with stakeholder groups, build profile as an expert in the field and have different flexibilities (and…

This seminar will be of interest to those researchers working in climate modelling, climate policy, assessing climate mitigation measures and low carbon transitions Abstract Simple climate models, unlike conventional climate models, are computationally cheap and large numbers of simulations can be run. As climate model intercomparisons take several years to coordinate, simple models have become…
The Priestley Society are hosting this interactive session, led by Priestley Chair Lea Berrang-Ford, which is open to all who are interested in doing interdisciplinary work.  You are encouraged to either send questions in advance of the session, or bring them along with you.  
You will have the opportunity to meet people from the University’s Themes and Platforms which drive and support the development of interdisciplinary research. The event will showcase examples of how our researchers work across the disciplines to tackle global grand challenges and provide the chance to make new connections. The new Chancellor of the University…
Inaugural seminar by Prof James Ford, Priestley Chair, Climate Change Adaptation Abstract The Arctic is undergoing transformative climate change, with many regions of the circumpolar north warming in excess of 2°C. These changes are having widespread implications, including disrupting food and water systems, increasing disaster losses, damaging transportation routes and community/industrial infrastructure, compromising health, and…
Abstract Drawing on the presenter’s recent book, this presentation reports on insights for a transition to a sustainable low carbon energy future that can be drawn from a study of the role of energy technologies in historical waves of industrial change. Drawing on evolutionary economics and ecological economics, this study examines the role that access…
