We have three cross-cutting research actions that stimulate and support research that cuts across traditional disciplinary boundaries to address global environmental challenges. These actions bring together staff and students from across LEC, enabling us to explore better the research that is needed in these areas, and to access opportunities that may transcend our disciplinary groups. They provide focal points for our interactions with our strategic partners.
Our research actions are open and flexible, but are focussed on three broad areas: improving resilience and adaptation to environmental threats; the sustainable management of the environment; and eco-innovation.
Our in depth strength in specific research disciplines is the foundation for “connected research” that integrates the natural and social sciences and across disciplines. Our nine disciplinary groupings provide focal points for all researchers with shared interests in specific subject areas.
