The EPSRC Centre for Industrial Sustainability (EPSRC CIS) is a joint research centre that operates out of four universities – Universtity of Cambridge, Cranfield University, Loughborough University and Imperial College London.
Signals provided the EPSRC CIS with a Content Managed Website, integrated forum, and projects area to allow academics and businesses to collaborate on research projects aimed at moving towards a more sustainable society.
Using the Umbraco CMS platform, Signals was able to craft a clean and fresh website, tailored with a bespoke behind the scenes collaborative workspace, where manufacturers (research members) and joint researchers organise, discuss and share their knowledge, research and results on efficient manufacturing processes, zero-waste / zero emisions factories, eco-intelligence, and sustainable industrial systems.
Currently manufacturers such a VITSOE, General Motors, M&S and Toyota are participating in joint research. An integrated forum is available for manufacturers and researches to discuss Industrial Sustainability themes and reports.
Our customer has been provided with sophisticated authoring and user management access, which ensures that the right content is visible to the right end user at all times – thus ensuring the integrity of research and intellectual property.
