Science is an international endeavour. The very best science has, for centuries, relied upon the free exchange of ideas and people around the globe.
The John Innes Centre is an international centre. Our success is built on our international workforce, our international collaborations and our international outlook.
Our researchers are from 33 countries, 64% of them from outside of the UK. We have 137 active, funded international collaborations with 39 countries. Between 2007 and 2017, 68% of our highly-cited publications were co-authored with international partners.
The international reach of the John Innes Centre strengthens our science and also the translation of our science globally. For example, increases in crop productivity supported by our wheat research were estimated to be worth £8.7bn in 2012.
To ensure the maximum impact of our science on global challenges such as food security, we build partnerships in those areas of the world where the translation of our research will make the most difference.
