NERC support for knowledge exchange
NERC promotes and encourages exchange of knowledge through its mainstream activities of
- publishing scientific papers and information notes
- training PhD students and postdoctoral scientists
- building formal and informal links with its user community, eg through meetings and conferences.
Commissioned research is a powerful driver for knowledge exchange, and NERC enables this by maintaining its network of research and collaborative centres.
NERC also provides funding for specific knowledge exchange activities including training, people and knowledge flow and networks; collaborative research with users; and commercialisation.
