Context and focus

Innovate UK and EPSRC invested up to £4m in CR&D projects (Collaborative Research and Development) into new knowledge for developing innovative products, processes or services.

The aim is to maximise the long-term
economic, societal and environmental
contribution of buildings, by improving
their whole-life performance.

This topic is strategic for the future of the property and construction sectors and there are many different ways to look at it, to approach it, many possible innovations and many organisations that can play a role. This funding will be the opportunity to turn some of the best ideas into reality!



There are no further events planned for this specific competition. 

To find out about other innovation opportunities, take a look at the activities listed in the event page here.
