Tyndall Manchester

About Tyndall at Manchester

About

Tyndall Manchester has a vibrant and committed research community that brings together scientists, engineers, social scientists and economists. We have capabilities covering a wide range of climate change mitigation and adaptation issues and undertake external consultancy projects as well as academic collaborations. We also offer postgraduate supervision and other opportunities for early career researchers.

Although primarily based in the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering, we have close affiliations with the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, School of Environment, Education and Development, School of Social Sciences and the Alliance Manchester Business School. Many of our researchers are engaged in the Supergen Bioenergy Hub, which is collocated with Tyndall Manchester.

Vision and mission

Since 2000, the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research has applied its unique interdisciplinary expertise to produce academically robust and policy-relevant research. It has established a strong international and national reputation for delivering cutting-edge and impartial analyses of the climate change challenge and successfully disseminating its research to a wide range of stakeholders.

As one of the core Tyndall partners, Tyndall Manchester produces world-class agenda-setting research on Energy systems, Carbon budgets and pathways, the Water energy food nexus, Communities, and Circular economy.

As a group, we have over a decade of experience in undertaking genuinely interdisciplinary approaches to complex policy problems. Our holistic approach remains a national and international benchmark in climate change mitigation and adaptation research.

The interdisciplinary climate change, energy and sustainability expertise within Tyndall Manchester also serves to build capacity. Our staff deliver sustainability and energy system teaching and supervision to undergraduate and postgraduate students. We support the development of people from PhD and post-doctoral researchers through to senior academic roles. As a group, we recognise the value and importance of professional support staff as being central to our success. With its specific remit of conducting policy-relevant and impactful research, group members undertake external consultancy and are given a wide range of opportunities for knowledge exchange and community engagement.

Tyndall Manchester has three core aims:

  • To conduct and disseminate internationally recognised, high quality and interdisciplinary research with a focus on climate change mitigation and adaptation.
  • To provide inspirational teaching that draws on high quality research and researchers.
  • To ensure our research has an impact on policy makers, business, NGOs and other stakeholders by communicating findings in language that is amenable and attractive to wider audiences and, where appropriate, by engaging these audiences in the research process.
