The Institute of Computing for Climate Science will be the first of its kind, supporting the application of the latest developments in computer science and data science to climate modelling.
Dr Emily Shuckburgh,
Academic Director of ICCS

The Institute of Computing for Climate Science studies and supports the role of software engineering, computer science, artificial intelligence, and data science within climate science.

The institute comprises a collaboration between Cambridge Zero, the Departments of Computer Science and Technology, Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, and University Information Services at the University of Cambridge.

The institute forms part of the larger Virtual Institute for Scientific Software (VISS) established by Schmidt Futures addressing the growing demand for software engineers with backgrounds in science, complex data and mathematics who can build dynamic, scalable, open software to facilitate accelerated scientific discovery across fields. We work closely with the teams comprising the Virtual Earth Systems Research Institute (VESRI).
