CIRIA and the Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction (CSIC) will show the value of data in supporting engineering, construction and asset management practices.

CIRIA and the University of Cambridge Centre for Smart Infrastructure and Construction (CSIC) have influential roles in developing good practices and delivering research that support a digital transformation in the infrastructure and construction industry. The respective institutions have shared interests and objectives that encourage proactive engagement with engineering, construction and asset management practitioners/academics and enable knowledge transfer to improve both practice and research. Focusing on the value of data in the whole life of infrastructure projects, this event is an opportunity to share research and insights from case studies and practice from CIRIA, CSIC and their partners.  The event will also feature presentations from the Centre for Digital Built Britain.
