RA Sustaining our planet and people


We are on a mission to support the transformational changes that are necessary for human society to steer itself towards sustainable development. 


Through a collaborative approach and partnerships, our researchers are delivering research and innovations in areas such as climate action, clean energy, ocean, freshwater and terrestrial ecosystems, sustainable bio-economy and One Health. 


Our location on the Atlantic shore, surrounded by lakes, rivers and wetlands affords us a living laboratory. Our international reputation in this areas is led by research across all Colleges and by the work of our Ryan Institute.
