The research applications period for Construction Climate Challenge’s research program has been extended by one week.
This is due to high interest from around the globe.
Since 2014, the Construction Climate Challenge Initiative has funded research studies. The program is vital in terms of tackling future global sustainability issues in an industry responsible for more than 30 per cent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions.
According to Dr. Peter Wallin, CCC Research Manager, the aim is to enable more applications in order to increase the project’s possibilities. “There has already been a great interest. We have reached out globally and have received enquiries from some of the best universities in the world. It is exciting to see the quality and potential that this could offer us.”
Interest from universities in Europe, the US and the rest of the world has led to the extension of the application period. Research plays a large part in Construction Climate Challenge, and finding the right type of researchers with the dedication and knowledge to make a difference is a top priority.
“Our goal is to involve the whole life-cycle with the projects. We have been able to reach further than in other such projects where the research would focus on our machines. This is a global sustainability issue, so we must look far and wide to the many different research institutions,” says Dr. Peter Wallin.
The new end date for applications is April 7.
