£3.5m research network will help UK reach climate change targets

The UK government has launched a £3.5-million research network to support the country’s transition to a low-carbon economy.

The Place-based Climate Action Network was launched on 31 January by Claire Perry, the minister for energy and clean growth. P-Can aims to help the UK meet the requirements of the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change and the UK Climate Change Act 2008.

P-Can will be supported over five years with £3.5m from the Economic and Social Research Council. It will operate a Flexible Fund that will commission between 20 and 30 small grants for climate and energy researchers to explore innovative approaches.
