Research

In line with our new strategy, one of our goals is to facilitate research and knowledge exchange.

We recognise that in order to facilitate post-16 education in laying the foundations for a sustainable future, we need to drive continual improvement and innovation in the sector and beyond. We will harness the wealth of experience and knowledge of our members to ensure on-going creation and dissemination of knowledge in sustainability.

We aim to be a platform for research, thought pieces, best practice guides and innovative resources.

Here is our most recent research:

EAUC commissioned the research paper ‘Next Generation Sustainability Strategy and Structure’ to help members understand the current sustainability landscape in tertiary education.
