Science and innovation
Science and innovation are at the heart of our organisation. Decades of discoveries by British Antarctic Survey scientists have changed the way that we understand our world. Curiosity-driven science, an innovative approach and technological advances of the late 20th and early 21st Century generate new knowledge that we hope will benefit our society.
Our collaborative projects take many forms. Get in touch with our Innovation team if you would like to explore collaborating with us. Read the BAS Strategy for Innovation and Impact in this publication.
