About Oxford Geoengineering

Oxford Geoengineering Research was established as a Community Interest Company in September 2009. It is based in Oxford and while not formally affiliated with the University of Oxford it has strong links with the University and academics from many departments and institutes including the Earth Sciences, Engineering, and Physics Departments; the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment; and the James Martin 21st Century School, as well as with academics from Plymouth Marine Laboratory, University College London, the National Oceanography Centre and the University of East Anglia who have already given time toward the initiation of this organisation and have expressed willingness to provide their expertise and time after its launch.

It is currently a virtual organisation it provides a means of building links between disciplines and institutions which share an interest in further our understanding in the field of geoengineering. The intention is to create an institute the Oxford Geoengineering Institute as a charity, to achieve the objectives laid out on the Home page.
