NewETHPOP: Evaluation, Revision and Extension of Ethnic Population Projections

This project aims to understand and to forecast the ethnic transition in the United Kingdom's population at national and sub-national levels. The ethnic transition is the change in population composition from one dominated by the White British to much greater diversity. We have produced projections at local authority scale which demonstrate that as the population is growing it is becoming more ethnically diverse.

MISTRAL: Multi-scale infrastructure systems analysis

MISTRAL is phase two of the UK Infrastructure Transitions Research Consortium (ITRC) of seven leading UK universities, investigating ways to improve the performance of infrastructure systems in the UK and around the world. Our research is helping businesses and policymakers to explore the risk of infrastructure failure and the long term benefits of investments and policies to improve infrastructure systems.

Consumer Data Research Centre

The CDRC was established by the UK Economic and Social Research Council as part of phase two of the Big Data Network to:

  • Contribute towards ensuring the future sustainability of UK research using consumer data
  • Support consumer related organisations to maximise their innovation potential
  • Drive economic growth

PIGSustain: Predicting the Impacts of Intensification and Future Changes on UK Pig Industry Resilience

PIGSustain uses a systems approach in order to understand how sustainable intensification and predicted climate changes are expected to impact on the pig industry as a whole - we are producing models to predict the impacts of intensification on the health, disease and welfare of the animals: how consumption patterns and retail prices are likely to be affected, how these changes will impact farmers, and how these in turn will impact on the health and welfare of the animals.
