Oxford University’s SDG Impact Lab has announced a strategic partnership with Rosberg Philanthropies, a newly launched philanthropic organization. The collaboration aims to address pressing environmental challenges by sponsoring Oxford graduate students who will work alongside businesses and NGOs to develop innovative solutions.

As part of the partnership, sponsored graduate students will conduct research focused on environmental and climate change issues. They will explore novel approaches to combat challenges such as carbon capture and ocean plastic pollution. The aim is to create real-world impact by applying research-driven leadership and fostering collaboration between academia and industry.

Former Formula One World Champion and founder of Rosberg Philanthropies, Nico Rosberg, expressed his enthusiasm for the partnership, stating, “I’m very proud to announce this first project in collaboration with Oxford University. We’re looking to create real impact with some of the smartest people in the world, so this is really exciting.”

Dr. Ed Brooks, co-founder of the Oxford SDG Impact Lab, highlighted the importance of the collaboration in addressing the environmental crisis. He stated, “We face an environmental crisis that requires deep understanding, innovation, and leadership. Through this collaboration, Oxford postgraduate students will work with corporate partners, applying their expertise and skills to develop implementable solutions, advancing positive change through their research.”

The Oxford SDG Impact Lab, established in 2021, brings together the research expertise of Oxford University and partners across sectors to tackle the most urgent challenges of our time. The Lab’s programs enable talented graduate students from around the world to collaborate with non-academic partners in developing creative and interdisciplinary solutions that align with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In addition to Rosberg Philanthropies, the Lab is already engaged in impactful research collaborations with partners such as the BMW GROUP (UK), easyJet holidays, and the UN World Tourism Organization. These partnerships aim to drive progress and contribute to sustainable development across various sectors.

By joining forces with Rosberg Philanthropies, the Oxford SDG Impact Lab further strengthens its mission to advance research-driven solutions and foster innovation in tackling environmental challenges. The partnership holds the potential to generate meaningful outcomes and create a positive impact on a global scale.
