NEWS: Networks to help communities be greener, more resilient and prosperous

UKRI brings together the seven disciplinary research councils, Research England. It is responsible for supporting research and knowledge exchange at higher education institutions in England, and the UK’s innovation agency, Innovate UK.

UKRI has invested £3.6 million in three networks to improve economic and social wellbeing and create more sustainable, resilient, communities.

Urban environments across the UK are set to benefit from new research that will explore ways to create more sustainable and prosperous communities.

This is thanks to a major investment in three pioneering networks delivered by the:

  • Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC)
  • Natural Environment Research Council (NERC)
  • Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).

Funded networks include

  • Urban systems and infrastructure
  • Digital infrastructure
  • Poverty and deprivation
