International knowledge exchange on infrastructure: challenges and new approaches.
Leading experts from Australia, United States, Germany, and The Netherlands exchanged May 21st views on how the challenge of aging infrastructure materialises in their respective countries, and discussed how they develop and implement new knowledge, technology and innovations to meet these challenges.
From 18-22 May the board and CEO’s of the CIB-members (the International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction) have visited The Netherlands. The main goal of this visit was to stimulate and facilitate high-level international knowledge exchange amongst the leaders of the national research institutes and related organisations. TNO hosted this visit.
As a part of the program, TNO and CIB jointly organised the symposium ‘Asset Management of infrastructure: challenges and new approaches’ on May 21st in Rotterdam. Leading experts from Australia, United States, Germany, and The Netherlands will exchange views on how the challenge of aging infrastructure materialises in their respective countries, and discuss how they develop and implement new knowledge, technology and innovations to meet these challenges. The symposium closely aligns with the recently published international knowledge and innovation agenda ‘Extending the Service Life of Civil Structures’, which was developed with an international group of experts at the initiative of TNO.
In addition to putting forward the major R&D-issues for the coming years, the agenda strongly emphasises the importance of an internationally oriented, collaborative effort in this field. This visit of the CIB board, and in particular the symposium, are valuable steps on this route.
