Nottingham researchers granted new funding to analyse conflicts between human priorities and environmental challenges

Two researchers from the University of Nottingham have been granted a funding boost to help analyse how thinking about a ‘more-than-human’ world can help us negotiate conflicts between environmental challenges and human priorities, to ensure sustainable futures for the planet and its inhabitants. 

Catherine Price, a social scientist in the School of Geography, and Tom Bott, a soil scientist from the School of Biosciences, will receive a share of £250,000 from the Advancing Capacity for Climate Environment Social Science (ACCESS) Flex Fund competition to help include the more-than-human world in responsible research and innovation.

Their project, which looks at animals, plants, soil, water and land, aims to develop a conceptual framework for including these more-than-human world elements within responsible research and innovation (RRI).
