NERC Environmental Risks to Infrastructure Programme (ERIIP) (Con233)

The Environmental Risks to Infrastructure Innovation Programme (ERIIP), run by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), is a collaboration between infrastructure owners, operators, policy makers, and regulators to fund innovation and translational projects, which use environmental science to identify, quantify and manage environmental risks, such as those from extreme weather and climate change.  

CIRIA provides co-ordination support to NERC on the programme, particularly brokerage and dissemination. 
On this page, you will find information on ERIIP events and documentation, as well as access to a database containing information about all of the projects awarded to date.
