Today's events

The South West Partnership for Environmental and Economic Prosperity (SWEEP) is a partnership project that will help deliver economic and community benefits to the South West, whilst protecting and enhancing the area’s natural resources.

Funded by the Natural Environment Research Council’s (NERC) Regional Impact from Science of the Environment programme for five years, SWEEP will bring academic experts, businesses and policy makers together to solve some of the challenges involved in managing, utilising and improving the natural environment. 

SWEEP is a collaboration of three research institutions: the University of Exeter, Plymouth Marine Laboratory and the University of Plymouth – working together with a large group of highly engaged business, policy and community partners.
