BGS Strategy stakeholder survey
Have your say as we develop our new 2023-2027 strategy.05/08/2022 By BGS Press
We are currently in the process of developing our next five-year strategy.
The 2023–2027 BGS Strategy will be fundamentally different to those previously published. Firstly, this is a strategy that will develop and articulate the investment across our whole organisation. We will also continue to invest and develop an excellent operational model, rooted in the high-quality delivery of our science, research and data information services to support our research teams.
Secondly, this strategy will be grounded in longer-term, overarching aims and themes, which will be delivered over a 15 to 20-year period. This aspect of our strategy will support ground-breaking change over longer timescales across both our science portfolio and all the facilities and services we provide.
We would like to invite you to participate in this short survey. Your feedback will help inform our thinking and shape the strategy. Our draft strategy will be available for public consultation in the autumn.
The closing date is 2 September 2022. If you have any queries, please contact Dr Keely Mills.
Climate change is increasingly recognised as a major challenge for organisations, with the need for adaptation driving a wave of policy updates and reforms across multiple sectors. BGS data holdings are relevant to many of these changes and the following examples outline how these data packages can be applied.
A new BGS report assesses the current situation around and future potential of deep geothermal energy in the UK.
The UK Critical Minerals Intelligence Centre has produced a scoping report that examines the aims of the UK with regards to developing a hydrogen economy, the sustainability of these targets, given current metal loadings, and provides some suggestions for overcoming potential challenges that the UK may face in securing raw materials to support this ambition.
A recent scoping study by the UK Critical Minerals Intelligence Centre assesses the application, importance and supply-chain risks associated with specialist alloys used in the aerospace and defence industries.
Data from deep onshore hydrocarbon wells is being released on an open access basis to help meet the UK’s net zero targets.
The Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) has achieved the ‘taking action’ tier of the Carbon Trust’s Route to Net Zero Standard.
The report, based on pilot projects across the UK, explains how spatial data and modelling can support better decisions on land use.
