This programme aims to stimulate new collaborations across disciplines to help realise the full potential of the UK’s contribution to environmental challenges such as energy decarbonisation, creating a circular economy, reversing biodiversity decline, sustainable supply chains and cleaner air.
The aim of this programme is to support high-quality research and innovation that will help develop practical solutions for today’s air quality issues and equip the UK to proactively tackle future air quality challenges in order to protect health and support clean growth.
The aim of the CERAF programme is to establish a climate and environmental risk analytics capability and capacity in the UK that will:
- meet the specific needs of the financial services sector
- enhance the resilience of the financial system to the increasing impact of climate change.
The aim of this programme is to improve understanding of the pathways between climate, environment and health so that we can better protect and promote human health and wellbeing in the face of climate challenges.
This programme aims to develop the digitally enabled environment by creating an integrated network of sensors, methodologies and tools for assessing, analysing, monitoring and forecasting the state of the natural environment at higher spatial resolutions and frequency than previously possible.
The aim of this programme is to undertake fundamental research that will advance our understanding of the potential effects that the introduction of a Geological Disposal Facility (GDF) for radioactive waste might have on lower strength sedimentary host rock. This includes detailed conceptualisation of the geology and groundwater.
This theme aims to support and fund research that harnesses the new potential of the data revolution, including the continued growth of communication systems and bandwidth, and advances in miniaturisation and sensor technologies.
The aim of this programme is to work with business and public sector users to exploit the rich diversity and potential of public, and possibly commercial, data to create innovative digital services that deliver economic, social and environmental benefits.
ECOWind will address two challenges. How will offshore wind expansion, combined with other anthropogenic pressures, affect species interactions and marine ecosystems? How can understanding these consequences enable robust approaches to marine environmental restoration and net environmental gain?
This programme aims to inform decision making by addressing critical gaps in our current understanding of the economic values, benefits and costs that society associates with, and derives from, biodiversity.
We will fund projects, bringing together scientists and economists to advance our knowledge in biodiversity and economics.
