Jeremy and Hannelore Grantham are donating GBP 12 million to establish the Grantham Institute for Climate Change based at Imperial College London, it is announced today (Monday 26 February 2007). This is the largest private funding given to climate change in the UK and will contribute to the world's response to climate change by stimulating a research drive to develop mitigation techniques, and by impacting directly on public and private policy. The donation will create 10 new research posts and provide a dedicated space for the Institute on campus, providing a focus for the scientists already working in this field at Imperial College.
