UKDA wins dedicated data support service for research programme

Article dated: 05-Apr-05

The UKDA together with the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (CEH) have recently won a bid to provide a data support service for the cross-council Rural Economy and Land Use Programme (RELU). The programme, supported over a five-year period by the three research councils, Economic and Social Research Council, Natural Environment Research Council, and the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council, aims to advance understanding of the social, economic, environmental and technological challenges caused by the considerable changes recently being experienced by rural areas in the UK.
