Energy Resilience in the Built Environment Centre for Doctoral Training - ERBE

ERBE represents an exciting partnership between MaREI (Ireland), University College London (UK), and the University of Loughborough (UK) that is funded through the SFI-EPSRC ‘Centres for Doctoral Training’ (CDT) Programme, and which aims to promote excellence in research through the training of cohorts of doctoral students and the fostering of collaboration between UK and Ireland based researchers.

ERBE will train innovative leaders with the necessary skills to transform the relationships between buildings and the energy system, providing sustainable, affordable, and healthy places to live and work. In order to achieve this, a whole system multi-disciplinary approach will be implemented that draws on the skills of each ERBE partner, involving the training of 68 students across five separate intakes.
