What we do
The National Platform promotes strategic, collaborative research because we believe this is a vital catalyst for long-term, industry improvement.
The built environment industry has to compete for recognition with technology-driven sectors such as aerospace and pharmaceuticals. To be effective in securing research funding and influencing our regulatory environment, we have to be more focused and work collaboratively.
Our mission, therefore, is to work across industry, to identify and define the priority areas for research and development and influence both UK and European Commission research funders.
By looking at the wider built environment rather than purely construction, we believe that we can deliver the potential of research to improve the built environment for all its stakeholders.
