February Newsletter Introduction:

We have had a busy start to the year, and are pleased to share with you some of our activities and news. A great start to the year has been the appointment of Professor Mark Girolami as the new Sir Kirby Laing Professor of Civil Engineering within the Department of Engineering at Cambridge. In this role he will provide academic leadership for CDBB across the University and more broadly throughout the national and international research communities. We are very much looking forward to Mark joining our team soon. You can read in this issue of two further key appointments we are looking to make, that ofHead of Research Programme Management and Operations Manager. If you know of anyone who may be interested to join our team in either of these roles please do encourage them to get in touch.

Last week, alongside the UK BIM Alliance, CDBB was pleased to support the BSI launch of the BS EN ISO 19650 Documents, National Annex and Transition guidance. You can read more about this and on the implications of the standards below.

We are delighted to formally welcome the Early Career Researchers and the new General Research Projects in this issue, and are looking forward to the outputs from this great variety of research topics. As a reminder we are still welcoming feedback on the DTFG's Gemini Principles. Do get in touch if you have any thoughts around the principles for an information management framework leading to the development of a national digital twin, as we would love to hear from you. We hope you enjoy reading this month's newsletter, and look forward to engaging with you in the coming months.

Andy Neely, Director CDBB
