We focus our activities around three major themes, each aiming to help solve some of today's environmental and societal challenges.
By examining the origins, evolution and complexities of Earth and life on Earth, we can address the key challenges humanity will face in the future. Our research is aligned with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, and we focus our activities around three major themes, each taking a different approach to solving today's environmental and societal challenges.
We study the origins and evolution of the Earth, its atmosphere, oceans and life, and of the other planets and minor bodies in our Solar System.
We aim to create a deeper functional understanding of the nature of the Earth's resources and the complexities of interactions between our planet and human activity.
