Adaptation and resilience in the built environment: informing future research council investments
EPSRC and the ARCC network invite researchers to this event to identify emerging challenges and priorities in the built environment research area with a view to informing future funding investments.
The focus will be on research related to buildings (domestic and non-domestic, urban, suburban and rural) and their interactions with occupants, the surrounding curtilage, form, supporting services and environment.
Discussions will build on evidence submitted in the recent EPSRC Balancing Capability exercise and will centre on the four interlinked Outcomes included in their Delivery plan that underpin UK prosperity: Productivity, Connectedness, Resilience and Health.
EPSRC currently funds 80 projects worth £43m in the Built Environment research area. To continue engagement activities within this theme, the EPSRC is now seeking discussion with and input from the broader research community and invited policy and practice staekholders on further developing the research portfolio. This will include exploring links and integration with related research areas. Outputs from the event will contribute to the wider analysis being undertaken by EPSRC to ensure that they are as informed as possible when making future strategy and investment decisions.
The event will provide an opportunity for participants to influence research council investments, to help re-structure the built environment research area to align with emerging challenges and to be better able to target their own research efforts.
To express your interest in attending, please register and complete the short survey.
It is hoped that there will be space for all interested researchers to attend. In the event of the workshop being over-subscribed, EPSRC and the ARCC network will endeavour to ensure a broad range of representation from different research areas and institutions.
We aim to send out confirmation of participation and further information by 19 September. There is no charge for attending this event.
