Beyond smart cities
TVVL has chosen the meta theme ‘Beyond Smart Cities’ for 2016-2020, in 2017 the focus will be on water.
Worldwide many people are choosing to live in cities, for different reasons, living relatively close together on a small area of land. The city needs to be set up in a clever and compact way.
Not only as far as planning goes, but also regarding safety, nutrition, energy, water, waste stream, etc.
The International council for research and innovation in building and construction (CIB) was established in 1953 as an association whose objectives were to stimulate and facilitate international cooperation and information exchange between governmental research institutes in the building and construction sector, with an emphasis on those institutes engaged in technical fields of research.
CIB has developed into a worldwide network of over 5000 experts from about 500 member organizations active in the research community, in industry or in education, who cooperate and exchange information in over 50 CIB commissions covering all fields in building and construction related research and innovation.
Within CIB, the W062 commission reports on research results, industrial developments and standardisation progress.
