Institute for Sustainability research
With a proud history of pioneering interdisciplinary research and impact in the field of sustainability, the Institute will bring together Surrey's research strengths in diverse but interconnected areas combining technological solutions with understandings of wider social contexts.
Core areas in which the University of Surrey can make a global impact by being at the forefront of interdisciplinary sustainability research:
Our study suggests that a playful and interactive education programme such as Heat-Cool is not only fun for our children, but it generates an interest in climate change and, importantly, it also stimulates an interest in STEM subjects.
Surrey’s Living Lab coordinates numerous projects based on sustainability, urban living and life-long health. Addressing real-world issues, these Living Lab projects use the surrounding area as a test-bed and engage the local community.
