Interdisciplinary Research

Our  interdiscplinary research is strengthed greatly by the Forest Edge Doctoral Scholarship programme (DSP) funded by the Leverhulme Trust.  This came online in October 2018. The programme has recruited around 18 PhD students over the four years and by October 2021 we will have recruited all students and some will have graduated! Projects are rooted in a strongly disciplinary setting, but set out to explore interdisciplinary challenges. 

It is difficult to categorise research into 'boxes' however below are some signposts to the great interdiscpinary research underway at the University of Birmingham.
