Final issue of ARCC news… 14 May 2018

The Adaptation and Resilience in the Context of Change (ARCC) network finished on 30 April


For nine years, and through several phases of the project, we have looked to provide a national focus for knowledge exchange and engagement activities informing adaptation to change in the built environment and infrastructure sectors. The aim was to enhance the provision of evidence and knowledge from research to better inform decision–making at the local, regional and national levels.

Over the years, we have had the pleasure of working with a large number of researchers and stakeholders at a wide range of events, from small focused workshops to large industry–wide showcases. We have worked with early career researchers to help develop their KE and engagement skills, and with policymakers and practitioners to better understand, communicate and meet their knowledge and evidence needs. With respect to research, we have welcomed input from numerous research projects contributing to themes as diverse as urban microclimates, impacts on heritage buildings, ageing & mobility in the built environment, green infrastructure, future materials & processes, infrastructure interdependencies, and dialogues on the impacts of the urban environment on people’s senses.

Information and outputs from the network will continue to be available on the ARCC website. We encourage you to use them, and to build on the synthesised evidence and knowledge we have produced within your own areas of interest.
