We fund research in universities and in our six research centres. These are owned by NERC and the staff working there are NERC employees. Several more centres around the country work in partnership with NERC to carry out research as it is needed. This ranges from rapid responses to urgent scientific requirements to strategic investment programmes and long-term surveys.
We work with national and international partners including NASA, the European Union and the Met Office. As one of seven research councils funded by the Government, we also collaborate with the other councils on issues of common concern under the banner of Research Councils UK.
We provide facilities including research ships and aircraft, analytical facilities, satellite data processing, supercomputers and pools of specialist equipment.
Data we gather through research are our most precious assets. We have set up a series of data centres to hold and manage them.
Our funding, administrative and corporate activities are run from offices in Swindon. More about our work at Swindon Office
