Into the blue logo


Come with us Into the blue to celebrate the best of British environmental science.

Expand your horizons about the science of the water and the sky, and everything in between, with nine days of events, exhibitions and the chance to come on board our state-of-the-art research ship and atmospheric research aircraft.

You will have the chance to meet some of the best UK environmental scientists to discover, discuss and debate the latest knowledge, ideas and innovations. It's the science we live and breathe at your fingertips.

Scientist talking to small boy

We at NERC - the Natural Environment Research Council - want to give people the chance to see our world-class science up close. During Into the blue you will be able to explore the tools used to make science happen, see the extraordinary work of our scientists and find out how it impacts on all our lives - improving our water, air, energy and health.

Last year we brought the RRS Discovery up the Thames to central London to showcase our science. This year we are delighted to be bringing the RRS Discovery to Liverpool from 4-7 October, alongside our atmospheric research aircraft, which will be open for tours at Manchester Airport from 25-29 October. These two events will give us a chance to shine a spotlight on the heritage of science, innovation and impact in the North of England.

I hope to see you there.
