The Sustainable Places Research Institute is a meeting place for world-leading sustainability science, focussed on exploring innovative solutions for a more sustainable future. While having a number of research fellow’s and associates based here in Sustainable Places developing our research programmes, we also have more than 100 affiliates from all disciplines across the University looking at sustainability from their area of expertise.
