NERC fosters UK and international partnerships that bring business, government and civil society together with scientists to address the challenges and opportunities of managing the environment, and to drive UK innovation, economic growth and societal wellbeing.

We will listen to your needs and help you find and use the best data, knowledge and expertise, to translate existing knowledge or co-design new research and innovation to address specific business, policy or societal challenges.

Businesses looking for potential university partners to develop and commercialise knowledge can use Gateway to Research - external link - to find information on research-council funded projects, outcomes and outputs.

Through working together, we will deliver our vision and enable innovation and growth with responsible environmental management.
