BRE Trust Fellows

In 2012 BRE Trust appointed twelve eminent scientists as BRE Fellows who will play a vital role in shaping and delivering the Trust’s future research strategy. A key part of their remit is to identify knowledge gaps in the global built environment that will help address key issues such as:

  • Climate change mitigation and adaption
  • Technology integration
  • Resource depletion
  • Mass urbanisation
  • Changing demographics and an ageing population.

They will also help steer research conducted through BRE Trust’s University Centres of Excellence programme.
