UCL Research Domains



The UCL Environment Domain brings together academics from across UCL to support the development of new partnerships, share their experience and perspectives, and increase the impact of their research. The Environment Domain aims to connect UCL's extensive research community working on environmentally relevant research activity to support the development of new insight and expertise.

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 draws on the breadth of our expertise to facilitate cross-disciplinary approaches. The UCL Environment Research Domain provides a platform for researchers to collaborate on cross-disciplinary activities which challenge and enrich our understanding of the world around us.

    Mission statement: “The UCL Environment Research Domain aims to bring together the depth and breadth of environmental expertise at UCL and promote cross disciplinary action from a range of theoretical perspectives to make our subject specific expertise greater than the sum of its parts.”
