Chalmers will use its research, collaboration and utilisation to be an international trailblazer on the road to climate adaptation works – with the campus area, the city and the region as its test beds. Chalmers will use its own and others’ research to reduce the carbon footprint caused by its own activities in line with national and international climate objectives – and be at the forefront in applying research findings in the process.
Chalmers’ positive climate impact in terms of research and utilisation is our biggest and most important contribution to climate adaptation works.
We have a significant role to play in the transition to a climate-neutral society. We undertake research on climate change, both on how it is to be countered and how we are to adapt in order to manage it. We develop solutions that can reduce emissions of greenhouse gases, take part in implementing those solutions and disseminate the knowledge and expertise we produce. This is our indirect positive contribution towards climate adaptation works.
Society’s challenges and curiosity propel our research forward and Chalmers’ research findings and their utilisation make a clear contribution to the transition to climate adaptation works. Chalmers’ activities include both research that is directly related to climate issues and research that creates the conditions needed for further research to promote climate-related issues and societal solutions. We prepare our doctoral students and researchers to be able to get involved and be active in climate adaptation works.
The benefit from Chalmers’ research will be passed on. We disseminate good examples and research findings that contribute to progress towards climate adaptation works focusing on research in areas such as energy, energy systems, energy storage, climate and sustainable production. The campus, the city and the region are our test beds and will constitute a shop window to the surrounding world where research findings are applied in practice. Chalmers will contribute to enabling existing national and international industry to become independent of fossil fuels and new sustainable companies to be created.
