ClimateXChange research is funded in three ways:

  • Post-Doctoral Research Fellows (PDRFs) who work in Universities and have individual work plans agreed with the relevant Scottish Government policy division, see our Areas of expertise
  • Dedicated CXC resource through SEFARI – Scotland’s environment, food and agriculture research institutes, which are independent research organisations funded to do applied and strategic research for the Scottish Government’s rural affairs, food and environment portfolio
  • A commissioning budget, used for projects where we do not already have expertise through the above funding streams

Current research grants, our commissions and vacancies in the secretariat are listed below.
