Research Reports

The EPA funds environmental research through the 2014-2020 EPA Research Strategy, which follows on from the Science, Research, Technology and innovation for the Environment (STRIVE) Programme 2007-2013, and the previous Environmental Research, Technological Development and Innovation (ERTDI) Programme 2000-2006.
