The Transforming Construction Network Plus provides funding for research projects aiming to address some of the biggest problems currently facing the construction industry.
The second round of funding calls for Small Projects is now open for applications to support projects that address the biggest problems facing the construction industry and in line with the expectations of the Industrial Strategy and the Transforming Construction Challenge’s core themes of:
- designing and managing buildings through digitally-enabled performance management
- constructing quality buildings through an offsite manufacturing approach
- reducing energy demand by improving quality of build and powering buildings through embedded active technologies
For this second round the N+ is offering two schemes to potential applicants. Building on the success of the first round, the N+ is continuing with the small research project schemes. In addition and to encourage Early Career Researchers to take part in the Transforming Construction Challenge, the N+ is offering a discipline-hopping scheme.
Discipline-Hopping Project Scheme for Early Career Researchers
The N+ is looking to fund ECR wishing to immerse themselves in other disciplines to respond to one of the challenges set in the Transforming Construction Challenge Agenda. Within this scheme, a move of location and/or department would be expected for a full-time period, up to a maximum of six months. Only stays within the UK are permitted. Applicants must demonstrate the long-term effects the project will have on the TCC and the positive impact it will have in the development of their capabilities and research plans.
