A UKCRIC Facilities Showcase for the UKRI NetworkPlus call: Improving the Sustainability of Urban Systems and Infrastructure

UKRI is set to fund three, £1M NetworkPlus projects, one each on the following themes:

  1. Green infrastructure development linked to blue, brown and grey infrastructure;
  2. Low carbon connected digital infrastructure with considerations between urban and rural environments;
  3. Sustainable urban systems, to become more resilient and adaptable across natural systems and infrastructure.

UKRI are looking to encourage a truly system of systems approach that will involve collaboration and the sharing of knowledge through utilising previous UKRI investments such as UKCRIC facilities.

The call for proposals can be found here.

For those who want to find out more about UKCRIC’s facilities, an online showcase is being held on Monday 11 October. You can register to attend the showcase here.
