The University of Reading is one of the UK’s 10 most research-intensive universities and hosts international centres of research excellence in agriculture and biological sciences. The University’s multidisciplinary research strengths fall into three main spheres (environment and sustainability, food, and health), where research focuses on issues of greatest societal importance. The School of Agriculture, Policy and Development is the UK's top university for impact in Agricultural Sciences research (ISI WoK) and is ranked 8th in the world (Thomson Reuters). The School is a leading centre of research in the natural and social sciences relating to agriculture, climate change, land care and biodiversity. Research covers food and agribusiness, rural livelihoods, plant and soil sciences, and the policy environments in which they function locally, nationally, and globally. The Centre for Agri-Environmental Research (CAER) undertakes high quality scientific research focusing on the impacts of agriculture on soil, biodiversity, habitats and ecosystems, and on the development of practical measures and policies to predict and ameliorate these impacts.
