  SCENARIO :Data synthesis and integration for improved climate impact assessment, modelling and policy
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr R Cornforth, Dr E Tarnavsky
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Climate change is already demonstrated in changes in the frequency and severity of extreme weather events.
  Crop pollination, pest regulation and soil management: Ecological intensification for sustainable food production
  Dr M Garratt, Dr T Breeze
Applications accepted all year round
Growing populations are placing an ever-increasing demand on agricultural systems to provide sufficient foods, particularly in the developing world.
  SCENARIO: Climate change impacts on UK apple production and quality
  Prof R Ellis, Prof P Hadley, Dr M Ordidge, Mr T Biddlecombe
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Future food and nutritional security requires sustainable food production systems in future, different climates. Perennial crops such as top fruit (apples, pears, plums, cherries, etc) are more sustainable than annual crops.
  SCENARIO: Nutrient release from coniferous woodland stimulated by changes in forest management: A new nitrate time bomb?
  Prof M Lukac, Mr M Ascott, Dr E Vanguelova
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Nitrogen (N) pollution of rivers and groundwater costs billions of pounds per year globally in water treatment and environmental damage from eutrophication.
  Seeing the unseen: application of novel sensor networks to measure the potential of soils for greenhouse gas mitigation.
  Dr L Todman, Prof M Lukac
Application Deadline: 16 January 2019
Soils can store carbon but also emit greenhouse gases such as nitrous oxide. As such, there is global interest in understanding the role that soils could play in mitigating net greenhouse gas emissions.
  SCENARIO: Engineering soil microbial carbon metabolism for multiple environmental benefits
  Dr E J Shaw, Dr R Griffiths, Dr M Redmile-Gordon, Dr E Armenise
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Soils are essential to human well-being because they perform multiple functions that underpin the provision of ecosystem services that sustain life and regulate climate.
  Urban Living Labs: Investigating the impact of professional boundaries and expertise on the development of Living Labs
  Prof F B Samuel, Prof T Dixon
Applications accepted all year round
The precise definition of an Urban living Lab has yet to be pinned down but we do know they are places, both literal and virtual in which the public, industry stakeholders, policy and academia come together to explore and develop research on some aspect of the city.
