Academic research, industrial R&D and the UK economy benefit from the increasing scientific activity across the globe. Through standard research grants, BBSRC can increase our impact by working with overseas partners and by recognising and harnessing the mutual benefit that comes from collaborative international research.
The aim of this programme is to find ways to deliver a better, evidence-based and interdisciplinary decision-making framework to inform how land is used, through research collaboration with policy, business and land management partners.
The aim of this programme is to identify biodiversity at new levels of detail and understand the breadth and contribution to ecosystem services made by biodiversity within Latin America. This will be achieved through new transnational collaborative research activity.
The aim of this programme is to research the scientific and technical challenges of using new technologies to deliver a more efficient, integrated UK marine observing programme. This needs to be able to meet science and policy data requirements, now and in the future.
The aim of this programme is to build on recent research in novel marine technology in the UK and Japan to deliver proof of concept projects for high-risk high-reward innovative sensing technologies. This will enable better understanding and predictive capabilities of ocean processes and resources.
This programme will take an interdisciplinary approach to funding research that aims to use local, cultural, and natural assets and activities to support improvements in health inequalities in the UK.
It is supported by a partnership with the National Centre for Creative Health (NCCH) and will fund projects in 3 phases.
The aim of this programme is to enhance understanding of the coupled central Arctic climate system at a process level. This will enable improved sea ice forecasting, extended-range weather forecasting, climate projections and climate change assessment.
Joint Programming Initiatives (JPIs) are a European Commission (EC) initiative to support intergovernmental collaborations to tackle grand societal challenges beyond a national level. They support European and wider coordination of national and regional research programmes and pooling of resources.
The UK has one of the best offshore wind resources in the world, comprising 50% of Europe’s tidal energy and 35% of its wave energy. Through this programme, NERC supports partnerships between the academic research base and the offshore renewable energy sector to help capitalise on this resource.
The aim of this programme is to provide an improved understanding of the rate of glacial retreat in Peru and its impact on water security and natural hazards.
