C3 Climate Change Cluster



The Climate Change Cluster (C3) is actively forming strategic commercial and research relationships with industry to ensure that its activities have a real world impact.

These industry engagements take many forms, from simple advisory roles to active research and product development activities. Our aim in engaging with industry is to help shape our research, to solve real world problems, to provide students with industry exposure and to become internationally recognised leaders in our various research domains.

C3 conducts a range of research programs across a spectrum of environmental, marine, sensing and biotechnology applications.
