The project “Developing a Tool Kit for Knowledge Integration: Envisioning Buildings-as-Energy-Service” is supported by The Transforming Construction Network Plus (N+), which is funded by UK Research and Innovation through the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund.

The N+ unites construction’s academic and industrial communities to create a new research and knowledge base, dedicated to addressing the systemic problems holding back the sector. The N+ is a joint project between UCL, Imperial College London and WMG, University of Warwick.

The project activity consists in the use of Cognitive Mapping techniques and is aimed at creating an inter-disciplinary research environment to stimulate the innovation processes related to the concept of “Buildings-as-Energy-Service”. The cognitive map is available as an open educational resource.
