Research at SASI

A key objective of SASI is to provide a focus for existing interdisciplinary research at the University and a spark-point for new collaborations across the whole breadth of sustainability. Members of SASI are drawn from more than a dozen academic schools and administrative units within the University.

SASI is not designed to create an ‘empire’ for anyone to own or claim rights over … rather, it is a facilitating mechanism to allow others to flourish.  The projects that are listed here are ones where SASI has made a key contribution to bringing people together to work on areas and/or has contributed funding to support the work.  The projects, however, are the product of the efforts, intellects and enthusiasms of the people involved – we were happy to be part of that.
