Loughborough water engineering experts awarded more than £287k for projects that support COP26 adaptation and resilience priorities
Loughborough University academics from the School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering have been awarded more than £287,000 for projects that seek to address key environmental research challenges relevant to the COP26 Adaptation and Resilience theme.
In summer 2021, UKRI-NERC invited applications for international, collaborative, and interdisciplinary project-scoping grants in a bid to “bring together researchers from a range of disciplines with other key actors, such as NGO’s, businesses and policymakers, to support solutions-focused research into key climate adaptation and resilience challenges faced in different locations around the globe”.
Twelve projects in total have received funding, two of which are headed by Loughborough University water engineering experts from the School of Architecture, Building and Civil Engineering, Dr Tim Marjoribanks and Dr Huili Chen.
Details on their projects were shared at the UKRI stand in the Green Zone exhibition at COP26 on ‘Adaptation, Loss and Damage Day’ (8 November) and can now be found in the full press release below.
