The Walker Institute for Climate System Research was established at the University of Reading in Autumn 2006.

It draws together a number of internationally renowned climate system research groups and centres with expertise across a wide range of core disciplines central to climate system science.

Our vision is to be a world leader in integrated climate system research in order to deliver better knowledge and understanding of future climate and its impacts for the benefit of society.



The Walker Institute delivers world-leading research at the frontiers of climate system science.

We work together with the wider scientific community, especially the Met Office Hadley Centre and the National Centre for Atmospheric Science to respond to the demands and challenges that the world is facing due to increasing vulnerability to climate variability and change.

Training the next generation of climate scientists is also a priority for the Walker Institute. We will capitalize on our integrated approach to develop a unique postgraduate education programme in climate system science.
