In addition to the principal thematic areas of EnvEast, we also host projects from across the entire NERC remit, including those at the interfaces with the other Research Councils in the UK. These include a multitude of topics; for example, soil science, river hydrology, hydrogeology, sedimentary processes, the environment and health, ecotoxicology, terrestrial and freshwater biogeochemistry, pollution, natural resources, risk management, social and economic aspects of the environmental sciences, the environment and international development, and national and international policy development.

When advertised (usually October-January), you can browse non-thematic projects by using the "Other" filter to examine projects that are principally within the above topic areas, but note that these topics are often intrinsically embedded in to projects classified under one or more of the three main focal areas, so it is advisable to view these projects as well.
