Centre of excellence
The Grow2Build European Centre of Excellence was established at Brunel in the summer 2015 and will ensure the continuation of the funded project. The aim is to achieve a recognisable presence within the construction industry as a place to seek consultation on every aspect of flax- and hemp-based materials; from cultivation and processing to laboratory research and development to the application of market ready products.

We are committed to the development of strategic partnerships with businesses, industry and the not-for-profit sector that will enhance impactful research and high quality funded research. We are also open to strategic collaborations with high quality academic establishments that will enhance opportunities for large-scale funded projects, DTCs and staff exchanges.
