Securing the basics of life for all

Securing sustainable supplies of water, energy & food is a key global issue.  Increasing demands on these commodities, together with pressures on land use and the need to manage the exploitation of natural resources in the transition to a sustainable economy will present challenges on local, national and international scales.

In response to these challenges the EPSRC is leading a 5-day residential sandpit in the water-energy-food nexus with the aim of enabling UK researchers to perform transformative work, potentially adopting revolutionary approaches to the complex challenges in this area.  Full details of the sandpit are available in the EPSRC call for participants.  The closing date for applicants to the Sandpit is 4 November 2014.
