Research Centre Norwich

The University of East Anglia in Norwich, United Kingdom, is an acknowledged centre of excellence in relation to the study of the inter-linkages between natural and human systems. It is home to several internationally renowned research centres (such as the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research (which is headquartered at UEA), CSERGE and the Climatic Research Unit) as well as the Schools of Environmental Sciences and International Development. UEA has been a passionate advocate and exponent of policy relevant interdisciplinarity since its foundation in 1963.

At UEA, many subjects which had normally been studied and taught in separate departments were brought together in interdisciplinarity centres and schools such as the Tyndall Centre. The geographical areas in which UEA researchers operate is highly diverse, and includes Europe as well as Latin America, Africa, Australasia and Asia.

UEA is also distinctive in terms of the diversity of methodologies and theories used and developed by its researchers and teachers. Consequently, it is actively involved in understanding processes across all 5 analytical problems of the Earth System Governance research agenda, namely access, adaptation, accountability, architecture and agency.
