Environment and Sustainability Institute
The University of Exeter's Environment and Sustainability Institute (ESI) is an interdisciplinary centre leading cutting-edge research into solutions to problems of environmental change. Based on the University's Penryn Campus, in Cornwall, our world class research and education is enhancing people's lives by improving their relationships with the environment.
The ESI, which opened in 2013, was made possible by funding from the European Regional Development Fund Convergence Programme and the South West Regional Development Agency. So, whilst much of our research and activities are national or international in scope, we ensure that Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly are at the heart of our endeavours. We are proud to contribute to the environmental, educational and economic futures of Cornish communities.
