UKRI is seeking to establish a set of transdisciplinary research hubs that will provide policy-relevant evidence and deliver high impact solutions-focused research and innovation, with the overarching goal of realising the health co-benefits of the UK’s transition to net zero, in order to protect and promote the physical and mental health of the UK population.
The hubs (up to £6m over 5 years) will be focused around the following challenge areas within the net zero and health space.
- Indoor environments in a net zero world
- Transportation and the built environment
- Sustainable healthy diets
- Extreme Weather
- Decarbonising health and social care pathways
Expressions of interest to UKRI are due by the 14th November. Ahead of this deadline, this informal online session will provide a brief introduction to the call, before opening the discussion up to participants to share their ideas, and discuss with colleagues and members of the RIDT any emerging partner or support needs.
