Stay Connected – A Brief Snapshot of RISE Collaboration Network in the Context of Sustainable Development Goals

20/11/2018

Understanding our impacts on the environment and our role in sustainable development is increasingly important for civil and structural engineers and should be at the heart of our practice, as highlighted by the ICE Global Engineering Congress. Mapping our research to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) enables a focused narrative on where our work contributes to society, helps us to understand where the potential is for research collaboration, and can help frame research bids giving them a stronger impact narrative, particularly important for GCRF submissions.
