All-Island Climate and Biodiversity Research Network
LEVERAGING R&D FOR SUCCESSFULLY TACKLING
THE CLIMATE AND BIODIVERSITY EMERGENCY
The All-Island Climate and Biodiversity Research Network (AICBRN) brings together researchers from a wide range of disciplines across the island of Ireland who are undertaking research in climate and biodiversity topics.
The ambition of the AICBRN is to develop
a large-scale research and innovation initiative to support policy and management decisions, underpin business and enterprise strategies and strengthen societal capacity to address the climate and biodiversity emergencies.
The diversity of disciplinarity and expertise of members across the physical, natural and social sciences, engineering, and humanities enables this network to cooperatively undertake the essential fundamental and challenge-based research required for Ireland to successfully address the climate and biodiversity emergencies.
The AICBRN is in a unique position to mobilise academia, communities, government and industry from across the island of Ireland to be a strategic and accountable voice for evidence-based solutions for Climate and Biodiversity emergencies.
Bringing together researchers across the island of Ireland
The All-Island Climate and Biodiversity Research Network
THIS IS WHAT WE CAN DO
AICBRN draws from and builds upon current research capabilities in the areas of climate science, climate mitigation, climate adaptation, biodiversity, nature-based solutions, and just societal transitions in Ireland.
Understanding, mitigating, adapting and finding new solutions
Discerning change and function, protecting and restoring ecosystems
Engaged research with strong citizen & stakeholder engagement and just transition pathways
Stronger together - the whole is greater than the sum of the parts
Knitting together the network of researchers from across Ireland can optimise existing research investments, identify critically needed infrastructure, and develop teams capable of not only addressing the challenges but becoming more successful in securing research funding, including both European and industrial funding adding further value.
