Our research is driven by the key challenges that we face in the world today.

Presence in: United Kingdom
Focus: Education

Our research is driven by the key challenges that we face in the world today.

For example: How do we produce sufficient, safe and nutritious food to meet the needs of a growing global population while at the same time ensuring that people have a healthy diet and that we do not damage the environment or waste scarce resources in the process?

We live in an ever changing world where, factors such as climate change impact on the environment, which in turn effects our food systems. Our research is designed to address these major challenges and to provide the scientific evidence to make informed decisions.

We do this by undertaking inter- and multi-disciplinary research collaborating widely with scientists and stakeholders across the world. The School’s research staff span a range of disciplines across both the natural and social sciences, from economists and anthropologists to animal, crop and environmental scientists – all located within a single School.
