What is the future for built environment research?

EPSRC priority areas include autonomous systems and robotics, complex manufactured products, computational and theoretical physical sciences, core mathematics and its interfaces, data to knowledge, digitally connected citizens, materials technologies and functional materials.

What do these mean for your research proposals? Do these bring new opportunities and challenges for innovation in the built environment? What synergies can be drawn from across all these priorities to further develop our built environments? Let us know your thoughts…

One thought on “What is the future for built environment research?”

  1. We had a really great day with the built environment researchers at the workshop held in London back in 2016, and uncovered a lot from their discussions around the priority themes. I encourage you to read our summary report on this site (pdf, 1.5 MB).

    I think there are opportunities for researchers in the built environment to maximise their use of responsive mode for funding, especially by engaging early with EPSRC with proposal ideas.
