Research into Sustainable Futures Sector

SWM are working with Marketing Birmingham and Birmingham City University (BCU) to undertake a programme of work to inform the training and other services BCU provide to organisations in the ‘sustainable futures’ sector in the region.

We are hoping to identify a range of organisations involved in the promotion, development or implementation of any of the following specific technologies to take part in ‘case study’ interviews:

  • Technologies used for the collection and analysis of environmental data (such as ‘big data’ and ‘open data’)
  • Technologies used for energy monitoring within domestic and public buildings
  • Smart technologies used for energy optimisation
  • Sensors to support monitoring of the built environment
  • Intelligent buildings

The interviews which will be conducted by telephone will last about 45 minutes.

If you are willing to take part in an interview we would be extremely grateful. Please contact Anna Bright at anna.bright@swm.org.uk or 0121 237 5890 no later than the 15 December 2014.
