About SIRN

The Sustainable Intensification Research Network (SIRN) builds on existing, bottom-up initiatives, developed by UK researchers in the agricultural, biological, environmental and social sciences for better integration of the communities working on Sustainable Intensification (SI).

Get involved

The network is open to anyone with an interest in the sustainable, secure and resilient production of food in the face of future demands due to the growing global population and environmental and socio-economic changes.

SIRN activities

The network participates in a range of activities and hosts an Annual Conference. We aim to promote events from other groups and organizations in fields relevant to Sustainable Intensification.
