Scientific Scope

Scientific scope

The scope of our work and collaborations puts Fera in a unique position to advise national governments and regional authorities, as well as individual farmers and retailers. Our work produces assessments and models that show how farmers can make decisions that are beneficial for both the environment and productivity. The same assessments can be applied by our specialists to advise governments and high-level decisionmakers on policies that will have the same beneficial effects, on a larger scale.

Data science at Fera

Fera is investing heavily in data science services and data modelling. We apply statistical analysis and mathematical modelling to big data on food and the environment to develop predictive models and early warning systems for policymakers and industry. Fera is leading the way in this work to make better use of existing data, extrapolating outcomes and scenarios that help governments and industry adapt to and mitigate the effects of climate change.
