Funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) which is part of UK Research and Innovation(UKRI); Lancaster University leads this initiative in collaboration with the Universities of Nottingham and Bangor, the UK Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, the British Geological Survey and Rothamsted Research. Envision also partners with large multinationals, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and international research centres.
