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

PDRF grants, our commissions and vacancies in the secretariat will be advertised on this page.
