Funding and support for faculty across U-M's three campuses to pursue innovative, actionable carbon neutrality research plus special programming designed to promote connections among researchers and stakeholders.
Researchers across the university are working to advance knowledge around a diversity of strategies that drive greenhouse gas emissions to zero or below, from renewable energy to carbon capture and sequestration, transportation, materials development, agriculture, data science, and more. At the same time, communities, institutions (including U-M), businesses, and governments are pursuing bold carbon reduction initiatives.
The Carbon Neutrality Acceleration Program is designed to amplify U-M’s efforts, mobilizing our research community's collective power to advance a low-carbon future. All U-M faculty are eligible to apply for funding that supports carbon neutrality research with the potential to effect real change in the world. Researchers will receive the support they need to maximize the impact of their work and translate outcomes for broad audiences, from policymakers to resource managers.
