IBM has been a leader in addressing climate change for decades. Now, we at IBM are offering IBM resources, at no charge, to help accelerate research in this crucial area. IBM's World Community Grid, The Weather Company (an IBM business), and IBM Cloud are partnering to invite scientists to apply for grants of large-scale crowdsourced computing power, weather data, and cloud storage to support research on important climate science and environmental problems and their impact. If you have any current or potential climate change and/or environmental research effort that could benefit from these resources, we invite you to learn more and apply at climate.worldcommunitygrid.org. The first round deadline for applications is September 15, 2017, after which we will select up to 5 proposals for grants beginning Fall 2017.
