How to get involved

Who can work with us?

There are no restrictions on which departments we can work with. If you have a research proposal, we can provide help if it meets the following criteria:

  • It is interdisciplinary
  • It has a significant environmental component
  • It involves more than one department at the University of York*

*If the proposed research only involves one department but is still highly interdisciplinary and fits with YESI’s research themes then we can make exceptions.

Through YESI I've been able to take part in new interdisciplinary collaborations leading to successful funding applications. YESI not only brings people together, but supports them as they develop their programmes of research.
