Research Strategy 2014-2020

In 2014, the 2014-2020 EPA Research Strategy was launched, which builds on existing strengths and experience across a very broad range of activities in support of environmental policy development and implementation.

EPA Research is targeted to address the needs of key governmental and non-governmental stakeholders and also encourages the researcher community to engage with these stakeholders.

EPA Research is built around 3 pillars:

and aims to:

  • Identify pressures: Providing assessments of current environmental status and future trends to identify pressures on our environment
  • Inform policy: Generating evidence, reviewing practices and building models to inform policy development and implementation
  • Develop solutions: Using novel technologies and methods that address environmental challenges and provide green economic opportunities
