Our research spans the global challenges that we face, focused around six themes. 

These range from meeting the needs of an ageing population to understanding the unique and fragile environments we live in, to tackling energy, food and water security so we can make the best use of our planet’s resources.

The research stories behind our themes showcase the ways in which we are seeking to address and answer the demands of our society as well as how we are informing, changing and adapting to them.
