The Trimble Fund is a ten year, £500k commitment from Trimble to the University of Cambridge.  The aims of the Fund are specifically to:

  1. enable world-class academic research that has the potential to achieve a significant impact across geospatial  technology for the construction engineering sector;
  2. develop the students and postdoctoral researchers engaged in the research, so that they are ready to champion construction information technology in academia and industry;
  3. raise the profile of advanced construction information technology in the construction sector, across academic disciplines and publicly.

There will be a call for proposals annually in September.  Decisions on project funding will be made by a committee consisting of the Head of Civil Engineering, a representative of the Laing O’Rourke Centre for Construction Engineering and Technology, and two representatives from Trimble.
