About Us

The Sustainable Infrastructure Research & Innovation Group (SIRIG) is recognised as a formal research group in the Munster Technological University (MTU) Research Ecosystem. SIRIG was originally formed by a number of researchers with an interest in sustainable infrastructural development in the broad context of the Built and Physical Environments. SIRIG is located on the Bishopstown Campus of MTU-Cork under the ‘umbrella’ of the School of Building & Civil Engineering and has grown substantially in recent years and includes researchers from across the disciplines of Architecture and related areas, Civil, Structural & Environmental Engineering and the Built Environment. Our focus is on the assessment, development and delivery of sustainable infrastructure across Structures & Infrastructure, Environment & Energy, Wellness in the Built Environment and Digitisation for Architecture, Engineering & Construction. Our research is aligned with MTU policy and the UN Sustainability Goals. We are involved in a wide range of research projects, both national and international and we collaborate with research institutions, Universities and industry worldwide.

Our Mission in SIRIG involves ‘Putting People and the Environment at the centre of Infrastructural Development’
