SUSTaim has involvements in collaborative research and development across a broad range of subject areas related to climate change and sustainability.
Past experience has built a network of connections with academic research partners, industry testing stations, and software developers that can be brought together to deliver specific projects. Funding has been obtained for past projects from a number of government supported programs:
EPSRC - Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council
UKCIP - UK Climate Change Impacts Program
Past projects have included support for construction product development and commercialisation, and the development of software tools for modelling and forecasting.
Advice can be provided to obtain sources of funding to enable R&D in the context of the design and construction of live projects, enabling academics to be brought together with practitioners and their clients to create supported innovation in the areas of sustainable development.
