The focus of this theme is to build pan-disciplinary PhD projects between the five other research pathways with the aim of breaking down traditional academia silo thinking and to create new exciting cross cutting synergies within the NERC remit.
The pathway will also include the interfaces between the environmental sciences and the remits of other Research Councils; including bioinformatics, economics, engineering, law, mathematics, medicine and social science.
It is within this theme that the contribution of environmental science to fundamental societal questions can be addressed: global health and population, water and food security, energy supply and security, ecosystem services, natural resource management, environmental governance and security, sustainable development, and urban development.
