About CTCN

The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) facilitates the connection between countries and climate technology solutions, expediting development and technology transfers for low-carbon and climate-resilient initiatives at the demand of developing countries. Positioned uniquely within the global climate action landscape, the CTCN serves as a vital link between all stakeholders, catalyzing collaborative efforts. It identifies and delivers a diverse portfolio of technology solutions, alongside offering capacity building and tailored advisory services on policy, legal, and regulatory frameworks to meet the specific requirements of individual countries. Leveraging the expertise of a global network comprising technology firms and institutions, the CTCN paves the way for national strategies, regional market aggregation, and the mitigation of investment risks, both in the public and private sectors. The focus lies on achieving transformative impacts and scaling up through national innovation systems and digitalization across five key areas: the Water-Energy-Food nexus, Buildings and Infrastructure, Sustainable Mobility, Energy Systems, and Business and Industry.

UNIL - University of Lausanne Institute of Earth Surface Dynamics

The Institute of Earth Surface Dynamics was established on the 1st January 2014, comprising researchers from five of the former institutes of the Faculty of Geosciences and the Environment. This gives the Institute a unique opportunity to group Earth Scientists, Environmental Scientists and Physical Geographers together, in a single institute, supported by world class field equipment, laboratories and computational capacity.

The mission of the new Institute is to undertake research of the highest international quality relating to earth surface processes and dynamics, over a range of space and time scales, and including environmental change whether related to human activities or natural processes.
