The E3i (Environmental Enterprise, Engagement and Innovation) Club
Research within environmental science involves more than just furthering knowledge, it has another place within society in dealing with issues of global importance. But very rarely is this place acknowledged. One reason for this is because links between academic institutions, industry leaders and policy makers, and of course the wider public, have historically been fairly weak. Enterprise and innovation are broad terms for the method by which these links can be created. In the context of our research it can mean engaging in outreach with the wider public, getting involved with local government or creating a product that can be used to address an environmental issue.
The E3i club is a student-led organisation which seeks to promote these activities through developing training opportunities, encouraging science communication, and creating ties with non-academic organisations with the aim of realising the full potential of our research.
Any research student based at one of EnvEast or ARIES partner institutues working within the NERC remit may join this club. If you're interested in joining, or wish to assist the club, or just need some more information, please don't hesitate to contact us.
