Winner of the RISE award for Design, Innovation and Creativity

The RISE Awards are the highlight of the annual Sustainable Ecological Engineering Design for Society (SEEDS) Conference – and this year’s ceremony saw Edinburgh Napier’s Bernardino D'Amico and Francesco Pomponi take home the Design, Innovation & Creativity award!

The RISE awards celebrate talented companies, groups and individuals who are changing the nature of the built environment industry through extensive research, development and innovation.

School of Engineering and the Built Environment colleagues Bernardino and Francesco were recognised for their RAEng-funded research on a holistic approach to post-disaster, post-conflict emergency sheltering. This led to follow-on research, funded through an Industry Academia Partnership Programme, focusing on sustainable materials.
