Our awesome features

Access world class academics

While companies struggle to keep up with a changing world amid a climate crisis, academics have a wealth of underutilised knowledge. Whether working with consumer brands to measure their carbon footprint, or investors to make more effective cleantech investments, climate academics are great partners for companies looking to gain a competitive edge and make research-based positive change.

ScholarTribe is different


Work with world-class academics at the forefront of climate research. Our vetted marketplace seamlessly connects you to academics producing leading research.


With access to ScholarTribe’s rapidly expanding network of leading academics, you can avoid expensive outsourcing to slow-moving traditional consultants.


We structure projects flexibly around your needs. Working with academics on a freelance basis, you don’t need to commit to drawn-out contracts.
