Our research

The Institute has a strong track record in international research, particularly in the Mediterranean region.

Drawing on its network of research associates, the Institute of Earth Systems regularly acts as a partner in collaborative research and in projects focusing on themes such as coastal management, biodiversity conservation, agricultural production, integrated water resources management, land conservation, stakeholder participation in environmental management, environmental assessment, landscape ecology, and sustainability.

Through such research, we maintain close links with a number of foreign universities and international organisations. Our participation in research further serves to ensure that the Institute's programme of degree courses is tailored for application to real-world situations in a variety of contexts, and also provides opportunities to students for hands-on experience in the international arena.
