Research impact

In the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014, the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences was ranked first the UK for its unit assessment.

The School's research aims to answer some of the most important questions in Earth and Environmental Sciences. However, the School's researchers are also concerned with transforming this research into real solutions that will make an impact in the world today. In particular, to continue to integrate science into solutions for society, government and industry in both the developed and developing world. Anyone with an interesting idea that could be developed as part of the School's research should contact the Director of Impact at eesdoi@st-andrews.ac.uk.
