Case studies

Our case studies highlight network activities and approaches that promote the use of evidence and help share learning:

Demonstrating our impact

By engaging both researchers and stakeholders, we have maximised and accelerated the use of outputs from across the academic community to inform the development of sustainable infrastructure and the built environment.

Effective dissemination

Cascading knowledge through ARCC conferences, with input from BIOPICCC project, Sustainability East and Essex County Council.

Investing in future research leaders

Our workshops and webinars for early career researchers have helped to enhance professional skills and develop expertise in maximising the impact of their research.

Mobilising research to support initiatives

Working with other networks to share expertise and research. Linking PROMETHEUS and COPSE outputs with the Technology Strategy Board Design for Future Climate programme.

Sustaining engagement

Drawing on experiences from sequential research programmes (BKCC, SKCC, ARCC) to explore the value of coordinated and long-term research in sustained engagement between researchers and stakeholders.

Synthesising information for decision-makers

Providing comprehensive evidence for use by policymakers. Outputs from SNACC, CREW and LUCID inform the Green Deal.

Uncovering new audiences

Working with the Feeling Good Foundation, we organised a series of seminars to examine how people’s sense can be affected by the design of public spaces and building frontages.

Working with professional institutions

Providing evidence to underpin advice and guidance given by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) to its 20,000 building services professionals.
