The University of Salford’s Friends of Energy House 2.0 Impact Fund is now open for applications for a range of initiatives that are focused on flighting the climate crisis that we face as we work towards creating a net zero world.

Following the first meeting of the Friends of Energy House 2.0 Impact Board, two programmes have been announced:

  • A fully funded PhD scholarship undertaking research at our Energy House Labs with the supervision of our renowned academic team
  • Funding for educational outreach programmes, and projects focused on supporting students and local community initiatives. 

We are now accepting applications from those interested in applying for funding focused on educational outreach programmes and community initiatives. The deadline for applications is 17 June 2022. 

The Friends of Energy House 2.0 PhD scholarship will be open soon with applications being invited from female and minority ethnic students looking to research on sustainability, climate change, and energy efficiency within the home and built environment sector with the exact topic to be determined by the successful candidate.

Friends of Energy House 2.0 is a community of like-minded industry partners who are committed to fighting the climate emergency and supporting the world-leading research of Energy House 2.0, a £16 million test and research facility that is part funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

We are also delighted to announce that Barratt Developments, BTS, Eric Wright Construction and Seddon Construction have joined Friends of Energy House 2.0, alongside our existing partners.

If you are interested in being a ‘Friend’ of this exciting scheme, industry partners are asked to make a donation between £5,000 or £10,000 to the Friends of Energy House 2.0 Impact Fund, which will focus on driving the activity of the new facility and enhance its social impact.
