BSEER: The Bartlett School of Environment, Energy and Resources

BSEER is home to the Faculty’s Institutes that specialise in Energy, Environment, Resources and Heritage.

The role of the school is to facilitate the Institutes and help them establish themselves and grow, enabling them to focus on and develop their academic direction and strategies.

How does BSEER work?

BSEER serves two principal functions. It provides a framework for administrative support to the four Institutes, combining expertise in, amongst other things, management and delivery of research proposals, multi-disciplinary projects and teaching programmes.

The School also provides a collaborative and flexible environment for the four Institutes to share knowledge and resources. Staff have the opportunity to move between disciplines and engage with the School’s shared problem domains of Energy, Environment, Resources and Heritage.

BSEER allows staff to participate more easily in multidisciplinary research to solve real-world problems, both at The Bartlett and in the wider UCL community.
