Two bits of good news this week about recognition and/or further take up of the work of the Greening ICT Programme.
First up on Monday morning was news from the team at De Montfort (Richard Bull, et al) who ran the DUALL and Greenview projects. First of all they have had a paper accepted for the upcoming RCUK Digital Economy conference in Aberdeen. Secondly they have just learned that they have been awarded £225,000 from the EPSRC to take the work forward as part of the research in the wild (digital economy) programme to develop a social media/iphone app to test in Leicester CIty Council engaging staff with energy behaviours.
Secondly I heard from Lucy Nelson at the University of Central Lancashire that the iBuilding project that we funded there has been nominated for a THE award in the “Outstanding Contribution to Sustainable Development” category.
well done to all concerned – and that’s before we know the outcomes of the Green Gowns second stage.
