Biotechnology and Biological Research Council (BBSRC)
Through our investments, we build and support a vibrant, dynamic and inclusive community which delivers ground-breaking discoveries and develops bio-based solutions that contribute to tackling global challenges, such as sustainable food production, climate change, and healthy ageing.
As part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), we not only play a pivotal role in fostering connections that enable the UK’s world-class research and innovation system to flourish.
Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA)
Our broad remit means we play a major role in people’s day-to-day life, from the food we eat, and the air we breathe, to the water we drink. We are here to make our air purer, our water cleaner, our land greener and our food more sustainable.
Our mission is to restore and enhance the environment for the next generation, leaving it in a better state than we found it.
