The Research Call evaluation period for the Construction Climate Challenge Initiative’s research program has been extended. Due to a large amount of enquiries, the date when accepted applications is to be announced has been postponed from May 1 to mid June.
The interest in the Constructions Climate Challenge Initiative’s research program resulted in a large amount of applications from all over the globe.
The review process is now underway, but the announcement of which applications that have been accepted into the program will linger for a while longer than what was first communicated.
“Based on the large number of interesting applications we will need more time than expected to complete our selection process. The funded projects are expected to be announced in the middle of June,” says Dr. Peter Wallin, CCC Research Manager.
Research plays a large part in the Construction Climate Challenge and the initiative has funded research studies since 2014. The top priority is to find the most suitable research projects that can make a difference and that supports the objectives of the Construction Climate Challenge Initiative.
“I am excited to see the quality and potential of the applications, and since the sustainability issue is global it is of vital importance that research institutions from various continents are included,” Dr. Peter Wallin concludes.
