Science at theEnvironment Agency
Science underpins the work of the Environment Agency. It provides an up-to-dateunderstanding of the world about us and helps us to develop monitoring tools andtechniques to manage our environment as efficiently and effectively as possible.The work of the Environment Agency’s Science Department is a key ingredient in thepartnership between research, policy and operations that enables the EnvironmentAgency to protect and restore our environment.The science programme focuses on five main areas of activity:
 
Setting the agenda
, by identifying where strategic science can inform ourevidence-based policies, advisory and regulatory roles;
 
Funding science
, by supporting programmes, projects and people inresponse to long-term strategic needs, medium-term policy priorities andshorter-term operational requirements;
 
 
Managing science
, by ensuring that our programmes and projects are fitfor purpose and executed according to international scientific standards;
 
Carrying out science
, by undertaking research – either by contracting itout to research organisations and consultancies or by doing it ourselves;
 
Delivering information, advice, tools and techniques
, by makingappropriate products available to our policy and operations staff.Steve Killeen
