Come to explore the most urgent problems facing infrastructure today – come away with collaborative ways to solve them.
UK Collaboratorium for Research on Infrastructure and Cities (UKCRIC) / Centre for Infrastructure Materials (CIM) Workshop
Date: Monday 17 - Tuesday 18 June 2019
The National Centre for Infrastructure Materials (NCIM) is a collaboration between the Universities of Leeds and Manchester and Imperial College London. As part of UKCRIC, a multimillion pound investment in equipment and facilities, NCIM is equipped with state of the art facilities for probing the performance of a huge range of materials used in the modern built environment.
The University of Leeds is hosting this workshop, open to industry and academics, to identify the pressing issues in infrastructure materials and collectively work out how we can try and solve them. Over two days, this is a unique opportunity to collaborate with colleagues identifying problems and working together on potential solutions.
Following brief introductions, we will identify pressing research problems using an Open Meeting approach. Then, working in teams, we will tap into the collective experience and capabilities of the groups to identify topics worthy of further research. It is our aim that, by the end of the workshop, each attendee will be part of a team putting together a research proposal to an appropriate funding body.
All that we ask is that you come along ready to contribute and collaborate.
