NERC Call for Evidence: Environmental Evidence for the Future

By Robert Lyons on 14th November 2017
Found in: Calls

The Natural Environmental Research Council (NERC) are seeking input from the community until 11:59 on 4 December 2017 to articulate the key knowledge gaps and evidence needs pertaining to a set of future environmental policy and practice challenges.

The UK Energy Research Centre has launched a £1.5 million Whole Systems Networking Fund. Funded by EPSRC, this scheme aims to improve the diversity, communications and collaboration between whole systems energy researchers and those engaged in more disciplinary focused areas of research.

The Fund will help develop best practice around networking, encouraging better representation of UK capacity in whole systems energy research, encourage fresh voices and foster new working relationships within the community.
