09 October 2017 University of Leeds Our research synthesis workshop is the first part of a programme to enhance the accessibility and uptake of research outputs to meet the needs of a diverse stakeholder community, and in a timely manner. Download a summary report of the day (pdf, 4.2 MB). Background The number of major … Continue reading Flooding & business – what does research tell us?
Focusing on adaptation to climate change in the built environment, the secondment aims to enhance the uptake, utility and value of existing simulation models at the building-, suburban- and city-scale by building on existing EPSRC-funded research.
Many research projects aim to provide models, visualisation tools, or data for stakeholder use as part of their final outputs. In reality, few manage to transition their ideas into a format that is usable after the project is complete. Through a desktop review, webinars and discussions with researchers, we have produced guidance on how to … Continue reading Helping researchers to enhance uptake & use of built environment models
A study and framework to evaluate both current and future flood resilience at a community level.
Researchers at Cambridge University have developed tools & techniques for flood risk assessment and a better understanding of the consequences of flooding & benefits of property-level resilience.
November 2011 A collated response from a wide range of stakeholders at the final project National Assembly. Summarised from the final General Assembly, November 2011 The CREW project involved a large array of differing stakeholder groups and interested parties. One effective means by which to reach these persons and to elicit and capture their views … Continue reading CREW from their stakeholders’ perspective
We support short placements for early career researchers to work more closely with policy and practice, and for stakeholders to get more involved in the co-production of evidence. The aim is to enhance the value and use of research outputs. Urban heat vulnerability mapping Innovative flood risk management for cities BIOPICCC: Toolkit impact development Investigating … Continue reading Joint working opportunities
Our flood-related work focuses specifically on the built environment and infrastructure. Research projects DOWNPIPE – adaptation of property drainage systems to cope with predicted changes in high-intensity rainfall events with implications for flood management. ARCADIA – understanding the inter-relationships between climate impacts, urban economy, land use, transport and the built environment to help design cities that are … Continue reading Flooding
Researchers at UCL found that the type and construction of a building may significantly alter its ability to dry following a flood. Flood depth and drying conditions also have an impact on the duration of damp.
Developing risk management measures and strategies for coastal communities against extreme events minimising impacts and increasing the resilience of coastal regions in Europe.
