Theme activity

Research, both directly and indirectly related to Sustainability, is a vital part of much of the applied and fundamental research activity across the whole of the Surrey campus.

The strategic vision of the Sustainability Research Theme has supported building a strong reputation and promotion of our aims and objectives since the Theme was established in late 2016. Key activities have included stimulating and developing research bids, initiating internal funding competitions, establishing Special Interest Groups and hosting research strategy workshops. 


Themes Celebration Event - 5 December 2018 

In December, we got together for an evening to celebrate the projects, placements and conference presentations that both Research Themes have funded during 2017-18. Many of our awarded colleagues gave fascinating overviews of the outcomes of their work and the Vice Provost Research & Innovation introduced the evening in style. You can read his speech on his VPR&I blog page

The presentations given by some of our awardees can be found below along with the booklet produced to summarise and commemorate the evening.
