“There is no doubt that our changing environment is one of the defining issues of this epoch. It impacts on every aspect of our lives from how we can secure the food we need to how likely we are to have flood water in our homes. It is debated at every level of government and business right across the globe.

I believe that science and innovation are key to meeting the challenges ahead. Cranfield are leading research into food preservation, flood risk, soils, environmental analysis and more. We are applying the latest technologies and analytical techniques, and creating solutions that will help us to minimise our impact on the world, produce better food and waste less and accelerate the green economy.

Our world is changing. But Cranfield is changing it too.”
