Microsoft has launched the Microsoft Climate Research Initiative (MCRI). The tech giant said that MCRI is a community of multi-disciplinary researchers working together to fight climate change. Initially, it is focusing on three critical areas in climate research where computational advances can drive key scientific transformations. These include: 

  • Overcoming constraints to decarbonisation
  • Reducing uncertainties in carbon accounting
  • Assessing climate risks in more detail

Results to be made public 

As per Microsoft, all results of this initiative are expected to be made public and freely available to encourage broader research and progress on these important climate issues.

“As researchers, we’re excited to work together on projects specifically selected for their potential impact on global climate challenges. With Microsoft’s computational capabilities and the domain expertise from our academic collaborators, our complementary strengths can accelerate progress in incredible ways,” added Karin Strauss, Microsoft Senior Principal Research Manager.
