EPA Research Strategy 2030 - Consultation

EPA-funded environmental research provides essential scientific support for environmental policy development, implementation and broader decision making. Since 1994, the EPA has funded research that has increased national understanding of our environment, the challenges it faces and responses to these. It has also developed high-quality research capacity and supported innovation that is internationally respected. The current EPA Research Strategy runs until 2020.

The EPA is now preparing a new Research Strategy for the period 2021-2030. The first public consultation phase was open from 17th January 2020 until 31st January 2020 and the discussion document is available to download from the EPA website.

It is anticipated the second public consultation phase will commence in Q4, 2020. Further updates will be published on this webpage, the EPA Research Twitter account and through the EPA Research Newsletters.
