Buildings contribute to the economy, society and the environment

Innovate UK is investing up to £4 million in collaborative R&D projects that can lead to better whole-life performance of buildings.

The aim is to maximise the long-term contribution of buildings to the economy, society and the environment. This is in line with Construction 2025, the joint strategy by government and industry for the future of UK construction.

If you’re working in construction or any other sector your business could win grant funding to develop products, processes and services through this competition. Proposals must be collaborative and led by a business.

We expect total project costs to range from £150,000 to £800,000.
