iCASP is once again inviting expressions of interest for iCASP projects.
If you have an idea please complete the 6 page Expression of Interest (EOI) Document that you can download from the link below.
So what defines an iCASP project?
We will support:
Projects that translate existing environmental science so that it is used to further integrated catchment management
Projects that address:
- Promoting the resilience of the region’s cities
- Mitigating drought and flood risk in the context of climate change
- Improving the delivery of flood forecasts
- Developing approaches to improve ecological and chemical status of surface and groundwaters, and water quality entering treatment works
- Enhancing carbon sequestration in soils and woodlands
- Supporting sustainable agriculture
Projects need to involve both academic and non-academic partners.
iCASP academic partners are: National Centre for Atmospheric Science, Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York, and for peat projects can also include the Universities of Manchester and Durham.
See our partners web page for a list of non-academic partners.
Some of the ways a project can be delivered are through:
- translating existing data, models, knowledge and/or expertise into tools, solutions and approaches,
- embedding new knowledge to improve organisational processes or services through people exchange,
- advancing academic outputs into commercially-viable products and services.
