Management Structure

The Centre for Designed Ecology is hosted at the Department of Landscape, University of Sheffield, and supported initially by internal resources.

The CfDE Coordinator and Academic Director oversee the day to day functioning of the Research Centre, and manage its communications. The Management Committee nurtures the strategic direction of the Research Centre, and contributes to the broad view of the website content, giving consideration for inclusion in “Who’s Who”, “Research Profiles” and “Case Studies”. The Management Committee also has the authority to accept consultancy requests and approve funding bids.
