The Climate Solutions Research Collective is a new UBC pan-university initiative designed to build connections across UBC climate researchers, groups and initiatives and to encourage new collaborative research on climate change solutions.
Through seminars, workshops, and a graduate student Solutions Scholars program, it aims to foster engagement across departments and Faculties, and to support graduate students and faculty in applying their research and expertise to climate change mitigation, adaptation, and/or education.
The application process for the 2023/24 cohort of Solutions Scholars has now closed. The Solutions Scholars program sponsors existing UBC Master’s and PhD students to apply their scholarly research to climate change mitigation, adaptation, and/or education. The focal areas for 2023/24 are i) wildfires and/or extreme heat, and ii) urban transformations.
