research and innovation
about research and innovation at exeter
as a russell group university our research makes a difference across the world. we believe in breaking down traditional barriers between academic disciplines so the bigger problems of the 21st century can be considered from human as well as physical perspectives. we are constantly seeking new ways to engage with partners to build productive relationships that tackle some of the fundamental issues facing humankind.
our research is contributing to a global understanding of the economic and social impacts of climate change, and a global drive to cut greenhouse gasses to create a healthy economy and protect the environment for future generations.
environmental intelligence aligns environmental, geographical and conservation research with applied mathematics, data science and artificial intelligence to understand our role in protecting and preserving the earth for the future.
our healthy ageing research and innovation activity is developing the medical, physical, physiological and environmental solutions that will help us all remain independent, productive, active and socially connected for longer.
we study microbes across all scales, from the sub-cellular to entire communities and seamlessly integrate 'blue skies' and applied research. our approaches range from state-of-the-art sequencing and imaging technologies to ecological modelling.
