Research & Development. The design, submission and implementation of research and development projects on Urban Green Infrastructure is one of Green4Cities’ core competencies. These projects range from obtaining research funding through to total project management. The team has successfully implemented numerous R & D projects through national and international research programs in recent years. The needs and aims of our clients always form the starting point for R & D projects to develop the most appropriate means of delivery.
The Green4Cities portfolio includes applying for R & D research projects, concept development for new and innovative solutions, feasibility studies on materials and processes, and the development of technologies and products that can quantify the benefits of Green Infrastructure in relation to microclimate, building physics, particulate deposition, resource efficiency and biodiversity. All of these activities have the common goal of increasing quality of life.
