Winton Programme for the Physics of Sustainability

Department of Physics

The Winton Programme for the Physics of Sustainability was established through a £20 million donation from David harding, founder and CEO of Winton Capital in 2011. Over the past ten years, the Winton Programme has nurtured PhD students, advanced research fellows and faculty members to explore the fundamental science phenomena to develop the innovative technologies required for future renewable energy systems, resource-efficiency and low-power methods to meet the demands of a growing human population.
