Fighting climate change with data
The Centre for Sustainable and Circular Technologies at the University of Bath runs a student-led annual showcase to share the interdisciplinary work of postgraduate students, academics and collaborators. In December 2020, this 5-day event explored the issue of climate change and how we understand where we are today and how to make real change for the better.
Throughout the event, the underlying theme of data and its crucial role to find solutions to the climate crisis was addressed by several speakers – how it can help more accurate definitions of the challenges ahead, aid innovation and scientific discovery, and predict the impact and sustainability of new technologies and behaviours.
Following the event, we approached some of the speakers to continue these conversations about data in our journey to reach net zero emissions.
The next CSCT’s annual showcase, ‘Race to Zero’, will take place online on 7-9 July 2021.
