Lloyd's Tercentenary Research Foundation

Lloyd's Tercentenary Research Foundation was established to mark the tercentenary of Lloyd’s in 1988. Since then, it has funded over 100 years of academic research in the fields of engineering, science, medicine, business and the environment through the provision of post-doctoral fellowships and business scholarships.

Today, through its partnership with the Insurance Intellectual Capital Initiative, UK Research Councils and specifically commissioned academic institutions, Lloyd's Tercentenary Research Foundation continues its work of funding top flight academic research by supporting new programmes of research on risk related issues. 

Role of Coastal Habitats in Managing Natural Hazards 

Lloyd’s Tercentenary Research Foundation is funding a two-year research project led by the University of California at Santa Cruz entitled ‘The Role of Coastal Habitats in Managing Natural Hazards and Risk Reduction: A Multi-Disciplinary Approach Across Ecology, Economics and Engineering’. UCSC and project partners, The Nature Conservancy and Wildlife Conservancy Society, aim to examine the factors that determine the role of coastal and marine habitats in damage reduction from flooding and surge. In particular, the research seeks to explore how nature-based defence systems can be incorporated into policy and industry and to quantify and emphasize the societal value that these ecosystems provide.
