Lancaster Environment Centre

Master's Programmes


The Lancaster Environment Centre is a major development on Lancaster’s Campus, bringing together a community of university environmental researchers, government scientists and a growing number of commercial enterprises.

The first two phases of the centre were opened in 2004 by Professor Sir John Lawton CBE FRS (current chair of the Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution) and Professor Paul Wellings, Lancaster's current vice-chancellor. These first two phases contain state-of-the-art controlled environment facilities, specialised laboratories and cutting-edge equipment to allow integrative studies of terrestrial, aquatic and atmospheric systems.

The latest phase of LEC (opened in May 2007 by Professor Martin John Rees, Baron Rees of Ludlow Kt, current president of the Royal Society) now provides more offices for staff and students, meeting rooms and laboratories for university research, a new facility for the co-location of businesses and offices for LECs Knowledge Exchange Team: Enterprise & Business Partnerships.

Researchers are supported by excellent facilities for chemical, biochemical, physical and biological analysis and a substantial pool of first class equipment and data management software, to permit scientific research from the molecular to global scales. Our strengths in the humanities, social and management sciences concerned with science of the environment and policymaking, complement this capability.
