Research Areas

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.
