Applications to Microsoft's next cohort is now open!

Microsoft and The Met Office are pleased to announce that the AI for Environmental Sustainability Programme 2022 is now open for applications! This is a unique programme with several benefits which I’m sure will be of interest to your communities. 

Our AI for Environmental Sustainability 2022 programme helps purpose-driven ventures in the UK advance their AI solutions to create positive environmental change. Microsoft, in partnership with The Met Office, will select a cohort of organisations with a commitment to building a sustainable future to join this four month programme.  

For the fourth year running, a unique curriculum has been designed to give you the holistic commercial, technical and environmental impact support you need to succeed, through engaging talks, workshops and one-to-ones, delivered by our AI Commercial and Sustainability experts, and experts in climate and weather science. 

Recent research showed that only 41% of UK organisations are on track to reach the government’s 2050 environmental sustainability targets. There is near-unanimous agreement that the worst effects of climate change tomorrow can be prevented with swift, large-scale action today. 

Now is the time to turn ambition into action, for UK organisations to accelerate their sustainability journey. Help us find those small start-ups that can make a big difference.
