2012 IMCRC and European Construction Institute (ECI) Knowledge Transfer Project

Loughborough University School of Civil and Building Engineering

Loughborough's School of Civil and Building Engineering secured funding from the University's Knowledge Transfer Account to increase the take-up of the IMCRC's research findings, by matching the industry needs of ECI members with relevant IMCRC projects.

The project was successfully completed on the 30 September 2012 and the following pages provide information to ECI members and other visitors – with a repository of the knowledge created by the IMCRC's Construction Research Group

The IMCRC completed its 10-year programme of research in 2011. During that time academics worked with 200 construction-sector organisations, large and small, to develop new product and process technologies, decision-making guidelines, models, support tools, handbooks and strategies.

The team was led by Professor Patricia Carrillo who worked with the ECI to identify members and research that related to their area of work. This was achieved by co-hosting workshops and producing a web-based knowledge repository. The team also participated at regular ECI events, including its annual conference in April 2012.
