The formal opening of the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes is on Tuesday, April 10.

The Centre was established in August 2017. Over the next seven years our vision is to transform our understanding of the processes that cause climate extremes, including their dependence on climate change and variability, and to use this process-based understanding to revolutionise our capability to predict future climate extremes.

CLEX is a multi-institutional research centre, led out of UNSW Sydney. Our other Australian university partners are Monash University, The University of Melbourne, The University of Tasmania and the Australian National University. In addition to these university partners, we collaborate with a suite of national and international Partner Organisations made up of leading climate research laboratories around the world and organisations that enable pathways to impact for our research. The Centre is funded by a significant $30 mil grant from the Australian Research Council, with additional generous support from our partner organisations.
