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.

There is a huge need for remote monitoring capabilities in today’s healthcare system to reduce the strain on our services and allow people to remain in their homes for longer thus reducing costs and maintaining peoples’ quality of life. Policy-makers and the healthcare industry leaders must come together to find the most suitable route for which to implement these innovations. Scotland is already driving change in this area with over 100 active companies in the digital healthcare industry. The use of remote patient monitoring capabilities allows for the development of personalised care plans whereby medication/care can be adjusted based on the data collected about that person.
