The small projects will unite academics from different universities to synthesise and bring the best existing and new knowledge to the rest of the programme and maximise exposure across industry. The research supported will focus on the gaps, inter-relationships and under-explored regions of this domain, spanning digital, energy, construction and manufacturing expertise, in line with the expectations of the Industrial Strategy Construction Sector Deal. 

Round 2: Funding call 

The second round of funding calls for Small Projects is now open for applications. 

As part of this ambition and with up to £600,000 to invest in a raft of new research projects, which will address the biggest problems facing the construction industry and in line with the expectations of the Industrial Strategy and the Transforming Construction Challenge’s core themes of:

  • designing and managing buildings through digitally-enabled performance management
  • constructing quality buildings through an offsite manufacturing approach
  • reducing energy demand by improving quality of build and powering buildings through embedded active technologies

For this second round the N+ is offering two schemes to potential applicants. Building on the success of the first round, the N+ is continuing with the small research project schemes. In addition and to encourage Early Career Researchers to take part in the Transforming Construction Challenge, the N+ is offering a discipline-hopping scheme.
