Applied Science & Applied Research

Science has many benefits to our society including creating new knowledge, improving education, helping us towards a healthier and more sustainable future and increasing the quality of our lives. With funding from the Channel Islands Lottery, we will ensure that locally based scientific studies can help us learn more about the world around us in a way that directly benefits our Island.

Applied scientific research will help the Island to fill gaps in existing knowledge or use current scientific knowledge to achieve practical or useful outcomes.
