Call for Evidence: Environmental Evidence for the Future Initiative

NERC is seeking input from the environmental sciences community to articulate the key knowledge gaps and evidence needs pertaining to a set of future environmental policy and practice challenges. These challenges have been identified via a series of UK-wide workshops (England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Overseas Territories) with the policy and practice community (along with leading academic, business and third sector voices) to define future environmental evidence challenges in light of the UK leaving the EU. Find out more about the EEF initiative and Challenge setting workshops

The Challenges Tool

Sixty-five challenges were identified and NERC is now seeking the input of the wider environmental sciences community via an online tool to:

  • validate these challenges
  • begin to outline broad areas of research and translation activities that have the potential to meet the required future evidence needs.

Your input will inform the scope of a proposal for a future large-scale transformative programme that will look to address priority future research and innovation needs.

Please submit your evidence using this online tool by 11:59 on 4 December 2017.

Sorry this tool has now closed (4th Dec 2017).  
‘Thank you’ to all respondents for their very valuable input. We will now analyse all 116 responses and identify the main evidence needs articulated for  future environmental policy and practice challenges in the UK and Overseas Territories.

The final report will be available in early 2018 on the NERC EFFI website
