News, Events and Publications

NERC regularly publish news and Planet Earth features on this website, and post on our Engage blog - external link. We also publish a twice-yearly Planet Earth magazine.

Whether our audience is the academic community, business, policymakers or the general public, our goal is to celebrate excellent environmental science, and demonstrate its economic and societal benefits in accessible and easily understood language. We hold events for the public and the research community to share and discuss cutting edge research.

In addition to the Planet Earth magazine, you can also see our previous annual reports and impact reports for up to and including 2017-18. For 2018-19 onwards, our reporting is done together with UK Research & Innovation (UKRI) and you can find those publications on the UKRI website - external link.

Note: From 29 October 2020 news is being published on the UKRI website. NERC news on this website is not updated after this date.
