NERC industry - academia brokerage event

This brokerage event took place on the 15 March, it provided delegates with an opportunity to find out more about the NERC five-year, £5m initiative 'Environmental Risks to Infrastructure Innovation Programme' and facilitated networking and joint proposal development between academic and industry partners.

The Environmental Risks to Infrastructure Innovation Programme (ERIIP) is a collaboration between academia and infrastructure owners, operators, policy-makers and regulators to enable the UK infrastructure sector to use environmental science to identify, quantify and manage environmental risks to UK infrastructure.

NERC is now inviting proposals for innovation projects under the third round of the Environmental Risks to Infrastructure Innovation Programme (ERIIP). Under this programme, all projects must have project partners related to UK infrastructure, e.g. infrastructure owners, operators, regulators or policy-makers. This brokerage event was run to support this requirement, and to support the development of effective partnerships between academia and the infrastructure sector.
