As a department we care about making the results of our work available to all our stakeholders, and in formats which are accessible and relevant.

The outputs of our research are available through a number of routes from formal scientific peer-reviewed articles, conferences proceedings and governmental reports, radio and TV appearances to brochures and leaflets. Many within the department teach on university courses and play their part in both national and international peer review and advisory groups including for policy makers, businesses and research funders.
