Birmingham has been challenging
and developing great minds for
more than a century.
Characterised by a tradition of innovation, research
at the University has broken new ground, pushed
forward the boundaries of knowledge and made an
impact on people’s lives. We continue this tradition
today and have ambitions for a future that will
embed our work and recognition of the Birmingham
name on the international stage.
The British Geological Survey (BGS), a component body of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), is the nation's principal supplier of objective, impartial and up-to-date geological expertise and information for decision making for governmental, commercial and individual users. The BGS maintains and develops the nation's understanding of its geology to improve policy making, enhance national wealth and reduce risk. It also collaborates with the national and international scientific community in carrying out research in strategic areas, including energy and natural resources, our vulnerability to environmental change and hazards, and our general knowledge of the Earth system.
The Centre presents a great platform for translating the scientific knowledge into innovative and end-users informed approaches and tools for addressing an important issue of groundwater impacts on urban infrastructure. By working closely with the industry, local authorities and governmental institutions we are hoping to deliver a wide range of environmental and economic benefits, and identify stakeholder-relevant research themes and projects.
