Solving business problems

Joint NERC / Innovate UK feasibility studies

NERC and Innovate UK have invested £4 million in feasibility studies which use environmental data to develop new solutions to business problems.

The business led projects aim to develop solutions and services which, through the integration of multiple environmental datasets or environmental data from other sources (such as 'business data'), offer specific commercial benefits and/or limit business risks and increase resilience.

Of the 33 projects funded, 21 include a NERC-funded academic partner. View the list of NERC-funded projects below:
