We bring together groups of researchers to explore a range of interdisciplinary water themes.

Our groups are always keen to collaborate with partners from industry, government, the third sector and academia.


Water security for safe and resilient societies

Understanding the impact of climate and socioeconomic change on water and the environment.


Integrated catchments for environmental sustainability

Taking a catchment-based approach to understanding the resilience of ecosystems and ecosystem services.


Next-generation tools for water solutions

Integrating sensors, data science, modelling, citizen science and data-human interfaces to manage risks to water resources and ecosystems.


Water for health and wellbeing

Applying a One Health approach to the role of resilient freshwaters in community health and wellbeing.

We believe it's important to respond to current and emerging societal challenges that cross-cut our themes. Find out more about the work of our affiliated researchers on plastics:
