Climate Change and Innovation - Imperial's Grantham Institute

Professor Richard Templer, Director of Innovation, Grantham Institute for Climate Change, Imperial College London

The Grantham Institute for Climate Change acts as the Imperial College centre of excellence for climate change, and as its hub for innovation. Professor Richard Templer, Director of Innovation, described the work of the Institute in driving discoveries and inventions related to climate change and the environment, and two start-up companies reported back on their support and success.
