The central task of the Landscape and Environment Programme was to commission outstanding research. The majority of the Programme's £5.5 million budget has funded successful research bids made by UK academics, with many involving partnerships with external institutions. The funded research covered a wide range of topics and time periods, looking at landscape and the environment in the UK and beyond.
Having invited applications for four strands of funding, we awarded a total of 12 larger grants, 9 smaller grants, 11 networks and workshops and 5 studentships. Although most research activities were completed by the Programme's original end date of December 2010, a small number of research projects were funded over the period of 2011-13, alongside the Director's Impact Fellowship, which was awarded to Stephen Daniels in order to further develop an impact strategy for the Programme.
Follow-on research activities included the Researching Environmental Change networks (REC) and the Bringing Landscape to Life project. The REC networks developed out of a 2009 workshop event on the theme of the environment, which was co-organised by the Programme, the AHRC and the Science and Heritage Programme. Although not officially part of the Landscape and Environment Programme, the Bringing Landscape to Life project built on the outcomes of the Director's Impact Fellowship.
Landscape and Environment projects have involved a large range of organisations in both formal partnerships and informal advisory roles. We thank them all for their support.
