In May, NERC published its plan to ensure the environmental research sector can capitalise on technology and data advances over the coming decade.
Advances in data storage capacity and compute power, alongside the rapid growth in transformative technologies such as artificial intelligence and digital twinning, offer huge potential to spark new scientific breakthroughs and insights.
NERC’s first digital strategy sets out a vision for digitally enabled environmental science for the next decade. It aims to empower the sector to seize this opportunity, and to support research that is ambitious, adventurous, and highly collaborative.

We’ve invited leading voices in research to discuss:
- what this means for the research community
- how we can deliver on each of the seven themes outlined in the strategy that span NERC’s work.
Speakers will include:
- Professor Paul Monks, Chief Scientific Advisor, Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy
- Professor Marian Scott, University of Glasgow
- Professor Kate Royse, Director, Hartree Centre
