More Efficient, High-Quality Buildings – Funding Opportunity

UK organisations can apply for a share of up to £12.5 million for projects to transform how the construction sector delivers new buildings.

There is a shortage of high-quality housing in the UK and we need more affordable, energy-efficient and healthier places to live and work. This is creating demand to produce buildings more quickly, safely and with lower emissions.

For this to happen there has to be a revolution in the construction sector. Currently it lags behind other industries for productivity – and hasn’t changed much in more than 40 years.

So through the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund government is supporting a transformation of UK construction.

The funding is provided by UK Research and Innovation and delivered through Innovate UK.

The deadline for applications is 19 September 2018. Full competition details can be found on the website.
