Announcing: The Climate Project at MIT

On February 8, 2024, MIT President Sally Kornbluth announced the Climate Project at MIT, an ambitious new model of accelerated, university-led innovation. Its three-part structure — consisting of the Climate Missions, the Climate Frontier projects, and the Climate HQ — is designed to marshal the Institute’s talent and resources to research, develop, deploy, and scale up serious solutions to help change the planet’s climate trajectory.
