Welcome to The ARC Centre of Excellence for the Weather of the 21st Century.
We research how Australia’s weather is being reshaped by climate change. Our Centre was announced by the Australian Research Council in November 2022 and commenced operations in early 2024.

Under the directorship of Professor Christian Jakob and his leadership team, 21st Century Weather is a consortium of 24 partners, led by Monash University in strong collaboration with the University of Melbourne, the University of New South Wales, the Australian National University, and the University of Tasmania.

Australian businesses and governments will have to answer such questions based on the best knowledge and technology available. This will require us to know the future of our weather. Achieving future climate resilience requires us to transform our thinking of climate change to one of weather change.
