University of Melbourne

Researchers from the University of Melbourne are actively engaged in meeting the challenge of a changing climate through various faculties and an array of initiatives. PICCC is hosted by the Melbourne School of Land and Environment, but is formally linked with the University’s Science and Engineering faculties. 

PICCC is also closely linked to and co-located with the Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute (MSSI), the Greenhouse in Agriculture program and the Victorian Centre for Climate Change Adaptation Research (VCCCAR).
