Our researchers, the Grantham Scholars, do sustainability research across disciplines at the University of Sheffield. From plant pathogens to policy, our researchers work on an impressive range of topics. Further, all our research works towards the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and so reflects the SDG’s multidisciplinary outlook.
Find out more about our researchers in our blogs and interviews. Here you’ll find easy to understand overviews as well as deep dives into sustainability issues.
The Scholars create unique research that examines issues from multiple points of view. Also, many of our people originate from, or work in, the ‘developing world’. As a result, the Grantham Centre is part of a two-way flow of knowledge and practice. Moreover, we provide the Scholars training and expert support. As a result, Grantham Scholars know how to get things done with their research.
This combination of training, research and experience means the Scholars are ready to tackle the challenges of a sustainable future well before they graduate. And they go on to do great things. You can check out our latest annual review to find out more – read The Story Continues.

We work closely with our partner sustainability teams at TUoS. Many of the researchers behind these groups are mentors to Grantham Scholars.
