The aim of this programme is to improve the representation of convection in the UK’s weather, climate and Earth system modelling systems. This will enable better understanding of convective processes and enable more accurate predictions of hazardous weather conditions.
Investment in research to understand human behaviour is an emerging priority for ESRC. We aim to enhance capacity and capability to tackle major societal challenges, such as COVID-19, levelling up and climate change.
This programme aims to examine:
This programme aims to bring together UK and Southeast Asian researchers to work collaboratively on:
We aim to improve understanding of the suitability and effectiveness of different natural flood management measures for a range of flood risk scenarios. This programme will support novel research on hydrological, sediment and geomorphological processes, and flood modelling.
ESRC supports research and datasets looking at the social, economic and public health impacts of COVID-19. The evidence is helping to shape the response to the pandemic and its effects now and in the future.
The aim of this programme is to increase resilience to hydrometeorological hazards in Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand and the Philippines. The focus is on creating a better understanding of likely impacts so that appropriate adaptation and mitigation measures can be implemented.
More than 20 university enterprise zones have been set up to help universities share knowledge and innovation with businesses and to promote local growth and skills.
This programme aims to understand and address the challenges that China’s ecosystems are facing from population and industrial growth, such as degradation of soil and water scarcity, within the framework of the critical zone, the portion of the earth that supports life.
