欢迎来兰卡斯特环境中心 Welcome to Lancaster Environment Centre
We deliver a range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes that address the physical and biotic environment of the world around us, and the implications of changes in that environment for society. Our research explores environmental change and aims to develop and deliver solutions to global environmental issues.
LEC is one of the largest departments in Lancaster University and has staff and students from around the world. We have significant links to China both in delivering training programmes and in undertaking collaborative research. We recently established a research institute with the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
Chinese students play a very important and high profile role in the cultural and social life of Lancaster University. Through our partner universities in China we host a Confucius Institute at Lancaster University which promotes Chinese cultural links, and we have a large and active Chinese Society.
Researchers in LEC conduct both fundamental and applied environmental research. A driving aim is to assemble cross-disciplinary research teams to address 21st century environmental challenges, especially those related to environmental change, sustainable (water, energy) resource and chemical management, biodiversity and ecosystem function, and sustainable agriculture.
