Solutions to Global Challenges
We are working with our international research and business networks to drive Sustainable Development. Eco-innovation delivers the goals of sustainable and equitable societies and economies and is a route to delivering the “green economy”, which the World Bank estimates had a global value of $3.4 trillion in 2015, predicted to grow to more than $8 trillion by 2025.
RECIRCULATE will support new partnership-based approaches to enable African researchers to grow transformational impact through working with, in and for their communities and developing robust, durable and equitable partnerships with UK researchers. It combines excellence in scientific research (environmental science, crop science, engineering, microbiology), social science and management research (entrepreneurial learning and knowledge exchange) with knowledge exchange and capacity building.
Supporting Challenge Driven Research
A challenge-driven approach provides a focus for all our research at the Lancaster Environment Centre, ensuring our work helps provide the underlying knowledge needed to find effective solutions for our external partners and creates significant outcomes and impacts.
A wide range of facilities and equipment enable integrated studies of terrestrial, aquatic and atmospheric systems, using chemical, biochemical, physical and biological analysis.
