The world faces complex environmental problems that endanger our well being, security and future. Environmental complexities resist straightforward solutions, so the UCL Environment Research Domain will draw on the breadth of our expertise to facilitate cross-disciplinary approaches. The UCL Environment Research Domain builds on the work of the UCL Environment Institute and provides a platform for researchers to collaborate on cross-disciplinary activities which challenge and enrich our understanding of the world around us.
The UCL Environment Research Domain will bring together the breadth and depth of environmental expertise at UCL, and beyond, aiming to:
help to form and support academic communities in aspects of environmental research
develop new environmental collaborations and partnerships, within and beyond UCL
provide development opportunities for early career environmental researchers.
The domain will complement and draw upon existing cross-disciplinary initiatives, whether institution-wide (such as the UCL Grand Challenge of Sustainable Cities) more focused activities such those of UCL Civil, Environmental & Geomatic Engineering, the UCL Energy Institute, UCL Geography and the UCL Institute for Sustainable Resources, and partnerships across the wider academic community like the London NERC Doctoral Training Partnership.
