Description of the organisation

The University of Exeter (UNEXE) was formed in 1955 and has 22,085 students from more than 130 different countries. It is a member of the Russell Group of leading research-intensive universities. It is ranked amongst the UK’s top universities in the Higher Education league tables produced by the Times and the Sunday Times.

Expertise particularly relevant for the project

The University of Exeter has rapidly built a world-leading capability in climate science, taking advantage of close links with the UK Met Office Hadley Centre. Within Exeter, Environmental Sciences is ranked 47th and Geography ranked 11th in the QS World University Rankings. Complementing the strength and breadth of physical climate science, and terrestrial biogeochemistry in Exeter, Marine biogeochemistry, an already strong area (Exeter Marine), has been identified for expansion with the development of the multi- million Euro Exeter Global Systems Institute.
