The Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) is inviting Knowledge Exchange (KE) Fellowship proposals that address the issues and opportunities around green infrastructure (GI) for planners in building it into investment decisions for developments in urban areas.
Under this call, NERC welcomes proposals that build on NERC funded research from applicants based in UK higher education institutions, NERC research centres and independent research organisations, to develop:
- Decision support tools around the value of GI and the effectiveness of differing GI approaches.
- Models to allow demonstration of value of GI.
- Innovative approaches that could assist in the development of new business models and processes underpinning GI.
- Case studies where planners have successfully used and sustained GI in developments.
The closing date is 27 April 2017.
