Cambridge Interdisciplinary Research on the Environment is a group that was initiated through a seminar series funded by CRASSH in 2011. This series was co-convened by the Departments of Social Anthropology, Geography, and the Engineering Department's Centre for Sustainable Development.

The series brought together people from a range of academic and non-academic backgrounds including the sciences, arts, humanities, and social sciences, and those working within policy, industry, activism, education, and media. The series has run each year since culminating in the Paris 2015: Climate Histories Seminar Series. 

The connections and networks made through the discussions in this series formed the backdrop against which some funding bids were developed and the projects that resulted are also featured on this site.
