Lindsay Bremner awarded a European Research Council (ERC) Proof of Concept Grant

Lindsay Bremner has been awarded a one-year, €150,000 European Research Council (ERC) Proof of Concept Grant for ‘Climate Cartographics,’ a project to test the societal and commercial potential of the cartographic techniques developed during the Monsoon Assemblages project.  She and two research fellows will work with the Active Travel Academy, Southwark Borough Council, Trees for Cities, and Pelagian (a sub-sea cable company) to develop pilot cartographic products using visual sensemaking and visual story-telling techniques. On the basis of these pilots and further market research, a business case for offering the services more widely to different sectors will be developed.

Climate Cartographics was one of fifty-five out of ninety-six applications awarded Proof of Concept grants by the ERC in this round. For the full list of recipients go here.
