Centre for Digital Built Britain


The Centre for Digital Built Britain (CDBB) has funded a number of early career researchers to provide research projects aligned with the CDBB mission. The mission is to develop and demonstrate policy and practical insights that will enable the exploitation of new and emerging technologies, data and analytics to enhance the natural and built environment, thereby driving up commercial competitiveness and productivity, as well as citizen quality of life and well-being.

Creating a digital built Britain is not going to happen overnight. The research will need a cohort of dynamic and engaged academics who are now in the early stages of their careers to take it forward."
