2014 the challenge
2014: The Challenge

  • Reduced RUG allocation

  • Where does the budget gone to?

  • Likely to MOE External grants: ERGS, PRGS, KTP, …

  • Requirement for External Grant: must involve external stakeholders

  • Eg. Science Fund (MOSTI): must involve RIs

  • Eg. KTP-Industry: must involve SMEs/industry

  • Eg. KTP-Community: must involve community/Gov Agency/NGOs

  • Many International Grants also engage SMEs, industry..

  • LOOKING FOR PARTNERS FOR A H2020 FUNDING CALL (WASTE-3-2014) ON RECYCLING OF RAW MATERIALS FROM PRODUCTS AND BUILDINGS OR (NMP-18-2014) ON MATERIALS SOLUTIONS FOR USE IN THE CREATIVE INDUSTRY SECTORMihalis Iraklis PanagiotidisProfessor of Nutrition & Toxicology and Department Head of Human Health, Heriot Watt University, School of Life SciencesTop ContributorWe are a multidisciplinary team of academics based at Heriot Watt University aiming to develop a proposal in the area of “Sustainable eco-innovation towards zero waste economy in the built environment”. In general, the construction and demolition (C&D) sector is the largest contributor of waste globally and, in the UK alone, as it is responsible for generating 120 million tonnes of waste every year. In addition, given the global resource constraints, recovery and re-use of raw C&D waste materials (minerals, metals and organic materials) are increasingly emerging as factors of utmost importance in providing the best overall environmental, economic and societal outcomes. The vision of this project will be to foster economically and environmentally sustainable solutions for the re-use of raw materials in the built environment. The strategies we will bring to fore underpin cost-effectiveness and eco-friendliness by minimising the need for bulk waste/material shipment and promoting near-zero waste in the C&D sector. This is achieved by delivering eco-innovation for the on-site closed-loop re-processing of C&D waste into new building materials. For these reasons, a range of R&D and international co-operation activities pertaining to the theme of re-using mineral resources from C&D waste in the built environment will be planned and structured around a case study involving earth construction. Thus, we would like to bring together a cross-disciplinary consortium that will address the proposed eco-technology in its entirety, including: (1) resolving engineering challenges, (2) ensuring public and on-site health and safety issues, (3) investigating societal, psychological and marketing aspects and (4) delivering viable construction management, business and regulatory models. Ultimately, our proposal will aim to (i) assimilate best practices and disseminate latest advances in C&D waste re-use to academic industrial and governmental/regulatory bodies, (ii) act as a point of reference in promoting the establishment of standards and legislation for the re-use of recycled C&D waste into new building materials and processes and (iii) establish an international pool of cross-trained pioneers with the necessary interdisciplinary expertise and global perspective required to lead the adoption of sustainable eco-innovation in the built environment globally. If such opportunity is of interest to you, I would greatly appreciate letting me know as to how would your group and/or Company be able to contributing in this project.
