Long Description: 
The Infrastructure and Environment Programme (IEP) is the part of the EPSRC engineering activity focused on addressing issues key to the quality of life of 
the UK's citizens. The research commissioned by IEP is specifically user-focused in order to complement that supported through the Engineering and Innovative
Manufacturing Programmes. The Programme supports research addressing the key quality of life drivers for the nation. Focusing on the goal of a sustainable
future society, the Programme also addresses quality of life issues for the individual and at a global scale. The Engineering Programme is responsible for investing in UK engineering research and training of the highest calibre, in collaboration with the Innovative
Manufacturing and Infrastructure and Environment Programmes. While Innovative Manufacturing and Infrastructure and Environment focus on highly user-led
applied research, Engineering has the responsibility to ensure that blue sky adventurous engineering research is encouraged across the entire spectrum,
that basic science and technology are translated into applications and that emerging areas are captured and nurtured. The combined budget for the whole of the EPSRC's Engineering and Infrastructure and Environment Programmes for the financial year April 04 - April 05 is approximately
£90M. This is valid for all areas of Engineering. EPSRC is currently supporting projects worth approximately £5M in the area of assessment and remediation
of contaminated land (note that most of these projects last longer than a year). They additionally support a £1.9M research consortium looking at integrated
management of sustainable urban brownfields. The budget is an approximate annual budget. This changes each year.
