We believe that research and innovation are essential tools for future success.
- We closely align the practices and results from the projects we manage to the education and learning of our students, ensuring they have industrially and commercially relevant skills and experience
- We are a recognised centre for applied research – a natural partner for demonstration, testing, trialling, and validation of technologies, products, processes and systems in real-world situations
- We aim to become a knowledge exchange hub, where employers can learn from and adapt the results of our research projects to suit their business needs
- We enjoy an innovative strategic alliance with the University of Chester and our shared Institute of Sustainability and Food Innovation will enable us to work together and provide a pooling of high tech equipment and expertise to enhance the learning experience and engagement in support of these vital agendas
- We nurture strong partnerships with environmental organisations and collaborate on sustainable grant projects within our farming and rural communities
- Our Projects, Research and Innovation team focuses on supporting the farming and food and drink industries, enabling this important sector of the rural economy to thrive, be more sustainable and resilient, and to contribute to environmental improvement
- We actively encourage staff and undergraduate scholarly activity, including attending and presenting at academic conferences and applying for research and travel scholarships
Ground-breaking biochar feeding trials to support more sustainable dairy production.
Reaseheath-led research will investigate the impact of feeding biochar to cattle – examining biochar’s impact on milk production in dairy cattle and general cow health and longevity and its potential to reduce methane.
The Smart Catchments concept offers a new approach to delivering ecosystem services.
The concept uses a network of low-cost sensors distributed throughout a waterbody/catchment, and open-source data and local information. This allows a data-rich, real-time and interactive view of the catchment to be created – this is a Smart Catchment.
eDNA survey technique
Revolutionary survey technique used to detect great crested newts on campus.
A rapidly emerging survey technique is being used for the first time by undergraduates surveying Reaseheath’s ponds for the presence of great crested newts (Triturus cristatus).
