Strengthening resilience in natural and built environments

UKRI's Strategy 2022-2027 includes cross-cutting themes which will provide a focus for interdisciplinary and cross-council opportunities (around £75M research funding earmarked for each theme). These themes include Building a Secure and Resilient World. We expect further calls for research projects in this theme over the next year, and expect that these will require interdisciplinary teams spanning multiple research council remits.

In September 2023, we ran an initial online workshop to understand the interest in this area. Attendees requested we organise a series of in person workshops addressing each of the five topics identified by UKRI under this theme. The first of these will focus on the question:

How can we strengthen resilience in the natural and built environments?

Our aim is to provide an opportunity for people to connect with one another, recognising there are funding opportunities on the horizon, but without the time pressure of a specific call.

Sessions on the other four themes will be organised over the coming months.

More details about the UKRI overarching theme and sub-themes here.

Attendees are asked to commit to attending the entire event, be ready to introduce themselves very briefly and contribute actively to discussions.

Tea and coffee will be provided.

Please note: This event is open to University of Glasgow staff only and will take place in-person only.

This event is part of the SpARC initiative: A programme of activities delivered in partnership between Research Services and the ARC to encourage and support the ideation and development of new research and collaborations. It is supported by the "Sustainability" interdisciplinary research theme in College of Social Sciences.
