TACKLING GLOBAL CHALLENGES
From improving biosecurity for a sustainable shrimp industry in Bangladesh to documenting the lived experiences of disability in Namibia, working together with a diversity of partners, University of Exeter are making significant discoveries to tackle pressing global challenges and supporting the UN Sustainable Development Goals through our inter- and trans- disciplinary research. These projects are generously supported by numerous funders. You can find out more about the funding programmes and the Global Challenges Research Fund below.
