ACCESS is structured into two inter-acting portfolios. The Research and Services Portfolio compromise seven thematic research sub-programmes making up an inter-disciplinary end-to-end (fundamental to applied) research focus on Global Change related issues and challenges. The Education and Training Programme is an end-to-end (school to early career) suite of sub-programmes, including one focussed on the post-graduate ACCESS class. Several other interventions across these portfolios form the basis of ACCESS's robust efforts to transform and expand the research footprint in the country.
