OUR ENVIRONMENT

VALUING ALL CONTRIBUTIONS

We tackle cross-disciplinary research priorities, by the formation of Global Research Institutes in areas where we have a critical mass of world-class research to take on major societal challenges.

And we support the emergence of novel, challenge-led research collaborations by seed-funding three-year Pioneer Research Programmes.
