Education opportunities through 4CMR

 

Academics

 

4CMR supports the academic mission of the Department of Land Economy in several ways:

  • We supervise undergraduate, MPhil and PhD students in their research. In some cases, Research Assistant positions are available to PhD students (but not to undergraduate or Masters students). Priority is given to students in Land Economy, but students in other programmes qualify if we have the capacity to accommodate them.
  • We coordinate and offer three MPhil courses in Economic Development and Land Use Policies (EP09), Climate Change Policy and Land Development (EP10) and Energy and Climate Change (EP06) within the Department of Land Economy. 
  • We provide lectures and seminars to which students from across the University are invited.

We have developed modelling tools (called Developed-Developing Nations models) for policy analysts, which are also available for use in GCSE and A level courses. These are available to teachers and students through collaboration with Oxford Cambridge and RSA Examinations, either as ways to visualise past model runs or to run the model yourself on-line.

A key area of research at 4CMR over the past 5 years has been the development of the Future Technology Transformation model, used in exploring how policies influence global technology and carbon. This includes an on-line visualisation tool so you can view our results.

4CMR works closely with the Cambridge Centre for Environment, Energy and Natural Resource Governance, with overlapping interests, skills and projects. C-EENRG is also located in the Department of Land Economy, with a core mission to "conduct integrative research on the governance of environmental transitions, understood as social and technological processes driven by environmental constraints that lead to fundamental changes in social organisation."
