The Institute for Population, Wellbeing and Environment Research (I-POWER) aims to build links across traditions, offering new opportunities to cohere research capacity around major areas of socio-environmental concern. I-POWER nurtures integrative research around 'big issue' themes that link, for example, meanings of power and good governance, health, housing, environmental policy, and demographic and environmental change.
Established in 2012, I-POWER brings together all staff and research students across the School to ensure that they communicate effectively with each other, and externally, on their research successes, interests and activities.
I-POWER activities are a mix of formal seminar events hosting external speakers who are recognised as leading international researchers in their field, informal research forums and roundtable discussions, and training events focused particularly at the School's growing community of postgraduate research students.
