National Centre for Statistical Ecology
The NCSE was set up in October 2005 as a joint venture between the Universities of Kent, Cambridge and St Andrews, with funding from the EPSRC. Its objectives include:
- To be a Centre of international repute for the development and
application of novel statistical methods in population ecology,
integrating the partner Universities' research programmes and
activities in statistical ecology;
- To develop novel statistical methodology for the analysis of complex data sets arising in ecology and to apply these methods to a broad collection of topical and important data sets;
- To train PhD and postdoctoral researchers to work as statistical ecologists;
- To develop a computer software system to enable ecologists to use cutting edge statistical methodology on their own data;
- To train end-users in the use of methodology and accompanying software developed by NCSE;
- and to build upon and create new collaborations with relevant stakeholders.
