Environmental Science to Services Partnership (ESSP)
The ESSP is a partnership of seven UK public-sector bodies. Our collective purpose is to develop ways to translate and apply the world-leading environmental science we each generate, to support the delivery and improvement of UK services.
By combining our data, information and expertise, we can design and deliver products and services for society, private enterprise and government. These will support appropriate decision-making and stimulate economic growth while ensuring the best possible outcomes for the environment.
Developing skills and knowledge transfer
We have recognised that our science, information, knowledge and expertise have a much greater value than data alone. It puts us in a position to collectively develop products and services that meet the needs of a variety of customers and advance the translation and application of existing and newly developed environmental science expertise.
With the collaborative approach across our organisations, we have a big opportunity to enhance the efficiency across the partnership by developing skills and knowledge transfer, thus building on each organisation's expertise.
At present the ESSP is working on a portfolio of projects to be taken forward by the partners in 2013/2014 with the first ESSP products being launched later in the year.
