Fossil Free Research
Fossil Free Research is a campaign to end the toxic influence of fossil fuel money on climate change-related research in universities. It is coordinated by international student divestment and climate justice activists with the support of a wide range of academics, climate experts, and university members.
In March, 2022 Fossil Free Research published an Open Letter signed by over 500 academics saying universities must stop accepting funding from fossil fuel companies to conduct climate research.
