The objective of the Challenge is to more quickly provide safer, healthier and more affordable places to live and learn that use dramatically less energy.

This ISCF challenge will bring together the construction, manufacturing, energy and digital sectors to revolutionise how we deliver the buildings the UK needs. Concentrating on:

  • How we manufacture buildings
  • How we design & manage buildings
  • How we power buildings

This call will be for Collaborative Research and Development (CR&D) and will consist of a portfolio of projects for up to 12 month feasibility projects and up to 24 month CR&D projects which address the subjects being explored by the Core Innovation Hub which relates to how we manufacture, design and manage buildings.

The details and scope of the project can be found online here.

This briefing event will include:

  • an opportunity to hear about the objectives and scope of the CR&D programme
  • an opportunity to learn how to get involved in the CR&D programme
  • opportunities to network and develop ideas and partnerships for the competitions
  • an opportunity to meet with UK Research and Innovation, KTN, CS-IC and wider stakeholders


Online Networking Platform: The KTN is hosting an online platform ‘Meeting Mojo’ to support potential applicants in finding partners for the ISCF Transforming Construction CR&D Call. Meeting Mojo allows you to search for and message potential partners to form a consortium for this competition. You can opt in for access for this during registration for any of the events.
