SAERI Officially Opened on 12th November 2012

The South Atlantic Environmental Research Institute (SAERI) was created in March, 2012 with a view to expanding the knowledge economy and environmental research within the Falkland Islands and beyond, within the South Atlantic. Director Dr Paul Brickle was appointed in March, 2012 and has spent the intervening seven months developing the institute. The focus has been on creating public awareness of the institute, creating and driving forward new projects, and forging links with other potential collaborators. The work has been steady and at times, perhaps, challenging, given the need to discover potential sources of funding, which of the myriad projects are feasible, and which scientists/institutes would be best placed as collaborators in each.
