Welcome to CIRRE

The £5M Centre for Integrated Research in the Rural Environment (CIRRE) is one of the four Centres of the Aberystwyth University and Bangor University Research & Enterprise Partnership. Find out more about the Research Enterprise Partnership...

CIRRE brings together leading academics from the Institute of Biological, Environmental and Rural Sciences (IBERS) at Aberystwyth University, and the College of Natural Sciences at Bangor University. There are also strong links with the NERC Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (co-located with Bangor University in the Environment Centre Wales). CIRRE's core competence is the ability to integrate research across a range of disciplines, from molecular biology through ecology to the social sciences, and to develop and test models that explain current landscape function and condition, and predict how this will change as a consequence of management and climate change.
