The Centre for Research in Environment and Society (CeRES) at the University of Plymouth combines expertise spanning both human and physical geography within an inclusive research environment. The staff and students in our Centre contribute to an interdisciplinary blend of research, designed to better understand and address the challenges of past and contemporary environmental changes and societal events. More than 60% of our research outputs and 80% of our research impact has been ranked as world leading or internationally excellent by the UK Research Excellence Framework in 2014.
The research conducted within CeRES draws upon a wide range of national and international collaborations with leading academics and practitioners from universities and research institutes around the world. We apply innovative methods and approaches to research on society-environment interactions, environmental governance, and past, present and future environmental processes and change, which transcends traditional disciplinary boundaries.
