Open Access research that is exploring the innovative potential of sustainable design solutions in architecture and urban planning...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

The digitisation of healthcare has been on the European agenda to modernise and improve healthcare across the member states. The focus in Europe has switched from developing technology to implementing digital health and ehealth. The digital skills for health professional's (HCPs) committee has surveyed over 200 health professionals. It has discovered no change has resulted in the education of HCPs to prepare them for said implementation. The EU risks spending time and resources on strategies that will have little effect due to the lack of change.
