NERC Environmental Evidence for the Future Initiative

last modified Nov 13, 2017 12:01 PM
NERC is seeking input from the community to articulate the key knowledge gaps and evidence needs pertaining to a set of future environmental policy and practice challenges, developed as part of the Environmental Evidence for the Future (EEF) initiative. Closing date for responses is on 4th December.

NERCA series of UK-wide workshops were held with the policy and practice community (along with leading academic, business and third sector voices) to define future environmental evidence challenges in light of the UK leaving the EU. Sixty-five challenges were identified and NERC is now seeking the input of the wider environmental science community to:

  • validate these challenges
  • begin to outline broad areas of research and translation activities that have the potential to meet the required future evidence needs.

 

 

Your input will inform the scope of a proposal for a future large-scale transformative programme that will look to address priority future research and innovation needs.

The Global Challenges Initiative is a Strategic Research Initiative of the University of Cambridge that aims to enhance the contribution of its research towards addressing global challenges and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030.
