Welcome to LimesNet
This is the archival website for the Low Impact Materials and innovative Engineering Solutions research Network - LimesNet
LimesNet was based in the BRE Centre for Innovative Construction Materials, within the Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering at the University of Bath. The network was funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) for 13 months from September 2011, successfully fulfilling its aims and objectives through its sponsored activities.
LimesNet was led by Professors Pete Walker and Tim Ibell at the University of Bath and benefited from a high level of participation through a large number of academic and non-academic partners and members.
Our Vision was to create a focused international multi-disciplinary community of leading academic researchers, industry members and other stakeholders, who share a common view for the development and adoption of innovative low impact materials and solutions to deliver a more sustainable built environment in the 21st Century.
LimesNet was a multidisciplinary network of leading academic researchers, industry members and other stakeholders, which aimed to stimulate, foster and promote research activities in the development of innovative low impact construction materials and solutions for the built environment in the 21st Century.
Its objectives were to:
- Create, sustain and expand an international network for the development of novel low impact materials and technologies for a sustainable built environment;
- Develop cross-disciplinary engagement through network activities;
- Support international collaboration by funding group overseas missions;
- Foster the development of large research council research proposals;
- Establish a sustainable broad international virtual online network of excellence to form new collaborations and disseminate best research practice.
The network provided a forum for developing and co-ordinating new research proposals and projects, international engagement, knowledge-sharing, dissemination of best practice and offering guidance to the construction industry.
