New NERC brand launched as part of unified UKRI identity

10 October 2019

A new brand for the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) has been launched today as part of a unified identity for UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).

The new brand reflects UKRI’s vision along with the identities and remits of the nine councils that form the organisation.

UKRI will now begin a phased introduction across the organisation and the facilities it manages.

Professor Duncan Wingham, NERC Executive Chair, said: “NERC has a proud history of delivering world-class environmental science, and the brand reflects this history as part of a unified identity for UKRI.”

UK Research and Innovation Chief Executive, Professor Sir Mark Walport, said: “UKRI has an important role to play and an important story to tell. The unified brand will help us to tell this story nationally and internationally.

“It shows how the organisation brings together the seven research councils, Research England and Innovate UK to deliver on our ambitions as a world-class funder, creating knowledge with impact across society and the economy.”
