Welcome to Connecting for Climate Change
From Innovate UK and KTN

KTN will be hosting a series of webinars in the wake of COP26, that will explore how we can work together to convert the agreements from the summit into reality.

Decarbonisation decisions – where do we invest in innovation to drive the greatest return?

In episode one, we’ll be bringing together policy and industry experts to discuss the commitments that have been made at COP26 and the major economic opportunity this presents for the UK.

Join the debate on where we should invest and innovate first.

About the Series

What happens after COP26? When the pledges have been made, the leaders have left and the headlines have waned? Then it’s up to all of us to turn talk into accelerated action.

Connecting for Climate Change is a series of four webinars designed to capitalise on the momentum of COP26, kick-starting the right conversations and collaborations following the much awaited climate change conference.

The sessions will bring together KTN’s network of researchers, innovators and experts who will drive us towards Net Zero. Join us to hear our panellists discuss the challenges we face, debate how we can best work together, and discover how these developments will benefit your organisation.

The series will be hosted by award-winning journalist and broadcaster Paul English, presenter for STV’s Scottish Passport and writer for National Geographic, The Times and Sunday Times.
