Sometimes these can feel like impossible problems to untangle – but new solutions are at hand thanks to some exciting new research and technology coming out of UTS.
Enter the UTS Climate Change Cluster (C3). A research institute embedded in UTS, C3 is working to address the big issues facing us in a changing climate – like food and energy security, sustainability and health, in Australia and around the world. C3 along with its education and engagement arm Deep Green Biotech Hub are the connecting point for partnerships between researchers’ expertise, and entrepreneurs and industry with real-world problems to solve.
