NERC (Natural Environment Research Council) is inviting proposals that address the issues and opportunities around green infrastructure (GI) in the planning and investment decisions that are made by local policymakers, local planners and organisations responsible for developing the built environment (construction, house builders, developers).
Project proposals submitted in this current round (deadline Thursday 22 October 2015) are expected to start by 1 January 2016 and to last for up to two years. A maximum of £125k (£100k at 80% FEC) may be requested. Smaller, targeted activities of three months upwards are also welcome and NERC anticipates seeing a range of requests within the £125k limit, reflecting the range of potential projects and activities.
Full details can be found on the NERC website
