Research Strategy for the Construction Industry

R&D strategy-a Construction Research Board The formation of a permanent Construction Research Board is strongly recommended in a recent report to the Building & Civil Engineering EDCs. The report is of great importance to structural engineers. It identifies why a research strategy is required and what should be its tasks. Basically, the CRB should: -develop the coordination of construction R&D -increase industry participation and interest in R&D -raise additional funds for R&D -periodically determine R&D needs and priorities -ensure maintenance of national R&D capabilities -improve technology transfer substantially S.B.
