Our mission is to enable world-leading research with innovative and novel methodologies, and to educate the sustainability leaders of tomorrow. Our ambition is to assess risks, solve problems and develop appropriate mechanisms to maximize our impact.
Our composition helps to deliver relevant Sustainable Development Goals on cities, climate change, energy, food, heritage, industry, infrastructures, natural resources and water, as well as the UK Industrial Strategy.
We run on a sustainable business model balancing teaching and research, partnerships and international collaborations across its four institutes. We are dedicated to inter- and transdisciplinary systems thinking spanning building physics, data analytics, economics, environmental research, heritage science, modelling, policy and governance, and more.
Located at UCL, London’s global university, our working culture endorses equality, diversity, inclusion, skill development and promotion of staff.
How does the School work?
The Bartlett School of Environment Energy and Resources 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.
Our structure allows staff to participate more easily in multidisciplinary research to solve real-world problems, both at The Bartlett and in the wider UCL community.
We generate approximately £24 million annually and employ 230 staff. Our four institutes successfully run degree programmes for around 180 Doctoral students, 420 Masters students and 180 undergraduate students. Our research project portfolio is approximately £63 million.
We are commited to the core values of UCL and champion a number of university-wide schemes. Several of our staff have taken on institutional citizenship roles to champion green impact and equality, diversity and inclusion in the school. Their work alongside the actions of our Directors and staff help us to make a fairer working environment, putting in practice our core message of sustainability.
