SuDSlab UK measures its impact in Research; Innovation and Demonstration; and Education and Awareness.
We continue our research into SuDS, with engagement at conferences and through the community. We are also pleased to have received a Highly Commended award in catchment-based solutions by susdrain in 2022 for our work into research in this area.
Innovation and Demonstration
We have developed a blueprint from which others can follow to monitor SuDS. By innovating in this space and through demonstration to a range of interested parties we can share the project's learnings with a wider audience. In collaboration with the DIG Project, we have appointed a full-time dedicated Knowledge Exchange Fellow in Floods and SuDS.
Education and Awareness
SuDSlab UK supports a wide range of education provision. We incorporate new learning opportunities about sustainable drainage into our own undergraduate and postgraduate programmes such as our MSc in Flood Risk Management. We also use SuDSlab UK as a community learning tool to raise awareness of flood risk and sustainable drainage within our local region.
If you would like to arrange a tour of the University of Hull campus SuDS, email Dr Alex Osborne.
We are exploring partnerships that will enable the expansion of the SuDSlab UK network throughout the UK. This will enable real-time monitoring of SuDS in a wide variety of real-world settings, providing valuable data to assess the capabilities of these important tools for climate change adaptation.
