Research Themes

Our approach is centred on transdisciplinarity – “transcending the traditional boundaries of natural and social sciences”.

Research excellence

Our internationally-recognised research excellence spans the NERC science remit, including:

Fantastic facilities

We make use of unique landmark facilities that include:

  • world-leading climate modelling

Training scientific leaders

ONE Planet is a unique opportunity for greater transdisciplinary focus in the NERC community. We achieve this by training NERC research students for leadership roles in:

  • academia
  • industry
  • policy making

They will utilise innovative and cutting-edge facilities. They will ensure the effective delivery of knowledge exchange.
