Today's event has been organised by NERC in collaboration with the TCPA-managed Green Infrastructure Partnership, a network of more than 700 people and organisations across the UK.
NERC knowledge and innovation manager Lynne Porter said: 'The vision of the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) is to place environmental science at the heart of responsible management of our planet.
"We have been delighted by the high level of interest shown in our Green Infrastructure funding call, particularly from organisations who have never had contact with the NERC before. It gives us confidence that we can look forward to receiving proposals that will generate long term outcomes for the benefit of society and the economy.'
The event, the NERC Green Infrastructure Innovation Projects Networking Seminar, is taking place at St Martin-in-the-Fields, London. The keynote speaker will be Professor John Handley OBE, of the University of Manchester.
