CIEEM members work in various parts of the academic world and the Academia Special Interest Group has been founded to, amongst other things: provide a link between practice and research; influence the research funding agenda; and promote evidence based decision making in the policy arena.

CIEEM is also committed to supporting students looking to enter the professions of ecology and environmental management.  As part of this work the CIEEM Degree Accreditation scheme was launched in 2013 to recognise those undergraduate and postgraduate programmes that teach the knowledge and practical skills required by employers.

The Academia Special Interest Group aims to provide support to members working in the academic field and their students through networking, providing a focus for sharing good practice and collating feedback on relevant issues.
