Event description
A summer school for research students aiming at exploring the potential of the GeoBIM approach for improved Asset and Facilities Management.

About this event

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Building Information Modelling (BIM) exploit the power of ‘where’ by creating 3D models and maps of physical assets. The use of GeoBIM for Asset and Facilities Management allows effective information management for decision making at both macro and micro scale. Knowing the “where” of data is also an effective way to link the disparate data underpinning a digital twin.

Who can participate?

If you are a research student highly motivated and willing to explore the use of digital technologies for Asset and Facility Management, you are the perfect candidate. You should have background expertise in GIS and/or BIM and/or Asset Management. The summer school will allow you to tackle both theoretical and practical aspects of information management for improved condition inspection and assessment of the built environment.

What are the expected outcomes?

  • Increasing the knowledge on the GeoBIM for Asset and Facilities Management through the investigation and teaching of theories and practices in BIM, GIS and advanced information management tools.
  • Development of case studies and demonstrations on the potential of GeoBIM for Asset and Portfolio Management, in the perspective of the development of a digital model of the built environment.
  • Contribute to the networking and collaboration among early career researchers.
  • Increasing knowledge exchange among different disciplines: Asset and Facilities Management, Architectural Engineering and Geographic Information Science.


21 - 24 June (AM). Final presentation 28 June. The program will be provided to participants.

How to apply?

This is a free event but we will be accepting a maximum of 15 students. You can apply to attend by providing a 300 word explanation of your motivation for wanting to attend the summer school, including an explanation of your current skills and how this course aligns with your current and future research direction. To provide the motivation, click on "Register". Applications are closing on 23 May and a feedback will be provided to successful applicants by 4 June.
