Building Education and Research explores this new active area of research in a series of papers by internationally acclaimed experts, presented at the CIB W89 International Conference on Building Education and Research held in July 1998 (BEAR `98) in Brisbane, Australia. Sponsored in collaboratio jointly by the Queensland University of Technology, the Conseil International du Batiment (CIB) and the Australian Institute of Building (AIB), the conference was organised around the theme `Building Research and Education Beyond 2000' and looks at the factors that are changing the requirements of building education and research: economic and technological concerns; environmental concerns; government policies; Industries' demands; re-evaluation of community expectations.
'It will provide insights for students, educators, project managers and building academics alike.' - Structural Engineer
Plans and Strategies for the Future. Internationalisation. Innovative Teaching. Continuing Education and Re-education.
This series consists of a carefully selection of state-of-the-art research books derived from CIB activities.
CIB, the International Council for Research and Innovation in Building and Construction, was established in 1953 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 since developed into a world-wide network of over 5000 experts from about 500 member organisations active in the research community, in industry or in education, who cooperate and exchange information in over 50 CIB Commissions and Task Groups covering all fields in building and construction related research and innovation.
