Who we are

Members of CliMathNet are mostly researchers working on problems relevant to the future of Climate Science. In addition to the these members, we have a number of project partners whose business means they have a high stake in the success of the project.


We have over 300 members in the network representing over 25 UK universities, international universities, research institutes and several policy organisations. We encourage researchers, policymakers and business representatives working in this are to sign up as a CliMathNet member. 

Project partners

Our project partners consist of UK Government-funded and research institutes, and international scientific networks on related areas. If you think you would be interested to become a project partner, please contact on the the management committee.

Our Sponsor

The network was originally set up with support from the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council as part of the cross-council Living with Environmental Change programme.

CliMathNet History

CliMathNet was established a network funded by EPSRC in 2012 with the aim of bringing together researchers who work on climate science with mathematicians and statiscticians so that they can collaborate on tackling important nationally and internationally important climate change questions.  The CliMathNet network organisers provided funding for UK community members to hold meetings and events aimed at establishing collaborations across these disciplines.  The first CliMathNet Annual Conference took place in summer 2013 at the University of Exeter and has been a major event in the CliMathNet calendar thereafter.  The academic leaders of the CliMathNet network project were Prof Peter Ashwin, University of Exeter and Prof Chris Budd, University of Bath.

On completion of the EPSRC funding for CliMathNet in 2015, EPSRC funded a further network supporting project to be based upon the CliMathNet network, called ReCoVER (Research on Changes of Variability and Environmental Risk).  ReCoVER funding provided feasibility funding for small projects addressing environmental and climate questions which bring together the environmental sciences community together with the mathematicians and statisticians community.  Further information about the ReCoVER project is available at the ReCoVER website.  The academic leaders of the ReCoVER project were Prof Peter Ashwin, University of Exeter and Prof Tim Lenton, University of Exeter.
