ENBRI Conference "Moving the Construction Sector forward through Research, Innovation & Standardization", Thursday 2 October 2008 at IMEC, Leuven, Belgium.To celebrate its 20th anniversary, ENBRI is organizing a Conference at IMEC, Leuven, Belgium.
This conference comes at a very appropriate moment for the European construction industry. Indeed we are entering a stage of profound discussions on transforming the Construction Product Directive into a stronger European Regulation. At the same time we are heading towards the next phase of the implementation of the ECTP Strategic Research Agenda through the forthcoming calls in Framework Programme 7.
Reflecting these changes, you will hear the views of EC’s DG Enterprise and DG Research on the regulatory and innovative future of our sector at the Conference. Furthermore, the IMEC, as one of Europe's leading research centres in the field of micro- and nanoelectronics, nanotechnology, enabling design methods and technologies for ICT systems, is an excellent location to reflect the future challenges and opportunities for our sector.
Participants will have the opportunity at the Conference to showcase their ongoing projects, achievement and capacities by means of posters.
