Event description
The CDBB Summer Showcase is a one day event held during CDBB Week, which will focus on the rich variety of research work at the Centre.

About this Event

CDBB Week 2019 will bring together key stakeholders from the Centre’s academic, industry and public sector networks to celebrate our collaborative and joined-up approach towards a digital built Britain that is fit for the future.

CDBB cordially invites you to attend our Summer Research Showcase on Thursday, 12th September 2019 at St. Catharine’s College, Cambridge.

The Summer Research Showcase will provide attendees with an opportunity to meet and engage with researchers in CDBB’s national academic network, as well as highlight CDBB’s critical contribution to academia and in providing the evidence base needed for the digital transformation of the built environment.

The Summer Research Showcase will consist of:

  • Keynote presentations from CDBB’s academic leadership, including discussions on the next phase of CDBB research as part of the Construction Innovation Hub
  • ‘Pecha Kucha’ style presentations from CDBB’s Early Career Researchers, PIs from the General Research Projects and Networks, including key findings from these CDBB-funded projects
  • Networking opportunities with key stakeholders from CDBB’s policy, industry and academic networks
