Research and Development Projects

The IEA undertakes commercial and grant funded R&D in order to help partners and clients to develop the methods, techniques, infrastructures and visualisation needed to exploit the growing volume and diversity of environmental data. Our typical projects are pre-commercial and range from a few months through to several years depending on the needs of our clients and the funding scheme involved. Our goal is always to make data more understandable, useful and accessible. By doing this we enable better, evidence-based decisions to be taken.
