Sustainability & Resilience

The environments we live in – and the infrastructures we build inside them – are constantly under threat, whether from climate change, economic instability or human conflict. These are challenges which researchers at Coventry University are meeting head on at a national and international level, helping communities and habitats to shore up and regenerate themselves by engaging with citizens, with businesses and with technology.

Our scientists are carrying out critical conservation work to reverse the decline in bumble bee populations around the UK; our experts in humanitarian operations are on the ground in Iraq and Syria helping refugees harness agriculture to make their camps better places to live; and our collaborative research with businesses in the rail sector is bolstering the infrastructure on which millions of commuters around the country rely on a daily basis.

These are just a few examples showcasing the reach and impact of our researchers’ work and how it is building resilience around us. Find out more about them by exploring the case studies below.
