ECOWind will address two challenges. How will offshore wind expansion, combined with other anthropogenic pressures, affect species interactions and marine ecosystems? How can understanding these consequences enable robust approaches to marine environmental restoration and net environmental gain?
The aim of this programme is to support and fund research that will further our understanding of how marine ecosystems will respond to the planned large-scale expansion of floating offshore wind infrastructure usage in UK waters.
This programme aims to inform decision making by addressing critical gaps in our current understanding of the economic values, benefits and costs that society associates with, and derives from, biodiversity.
We will fund projects, bringing together scientists and economists to advance our knowledge in biodiversity and economics.
The Economic and Social Research Council supports the creation of new insights from research and data sets that help people, organisations and policymakers understand the economy and improve day-to-day life in the UK and around the world.
Design and manufacture of electromechanical systems and their accompanying power electronic drives and controls.
This research area focuses on the study of chemical phenomena associated with charge transfer, charge separation and electrochemical reactions at interfaces.
The aim of this programme is to carry out research to predict how the environment will respond to chemical exposure. Research will focus on the impacts of chemicals on populations and ecosystems, and on chemicals (and chemical mixtures) whose environmental impacts have not been explored.
The aim of this programme is to establish the UK as a leading innovator in smart and sustainable plastic packaging for consumer products, delivering cleaner growth across the supply chain, with a significant reduction in plastic waste entering the environment by 2025.
Research into energy demand and its reduction through technical and socio-economic measures. It includes research in the context of the built environment, transport, heat, industrial processes and products.
This programme is investing in world-leading research, training and innovation across the energy system. The aim is to increase scientific and industrial capability to ensure secure, safe and affordable energy while continuing to tackle climate change through the reduction of carbon emissions.
