Centre for Agri-Environmental Research - University of Reading

Europe, United Kingdom

Meeting increasing food demands whilst protecting the wider environment is arguably one of the greatest challenges facing humanity in the 21st Century. The only way to meet this challenge is to bring research disciplines together. 

Our expertise is primarily in plant and animal ecology, but all of our research is developed collaboratively within this wider multi-disciplinary context. Within the University we are acting as the focal point to promote greater integration across the Food and Environment research themes, and externally we work with a wide range of organisations and individuals within the UK and overseas.

Our aims are:

  • To carry out high quality scientific research that aims to reconcile the often-conflicting demands of agricultural production and environmental protection.
  • To develop partnerships with researchers, funding agencies, industry, policy makers, users and stakeholders to apply our knowledge and expertise to the design of sustainable agricultural landscapes.
