New climate emergency funding for the University of Glasgow

International Edu News

The University of Glasgow has been awarded around £250,000 by the Scottish Funding Council’s Climate Emergency Collaboration Challenge for a new sustainable housing project in Govanhill, announced today by Minister for Trade, Investment and Innovation, Ivan McKee.

In partnership with Glasgow City Council, Southside Housing Association and other partners, the University of Glasgow-led UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence (CaCHE) will lead a project which will retrofit a block of eight tenement flats in Govanhill. The project will allow for real-life testing of changes to specification for the refurbishment of properties to significantly reduce carbon emissions from the refurbished building, and an evaluation of how best to solve sustainability issues with Glasgow’s wider, iconic older tenement stock.

This new funding is the first outcome of the Memorandum of Understanding agreed between Glasgow City Council and the academic institutions in the city which commits universities and colleges to work with the Council to advance shared priorities and ensure academic expertise is able to inform public policy in Glasgow.
