Join Us for a Unique Co-Creation Event!

Calling all companies in the infrastructure and built environment sector! You're invited to our Marie Curie COFUND Co-Creation event on October 25th in Cambridge. This is a remarkable opportunity to collaborate with the University of Cambridge, connect with our industry consortium of 49 FIBE3 CDT and Roads Research Alliance partners, and engage with like-minded stakeholders.

At this event, we will collectively shape a roadmap for research challenges spanning the entire asset lifecycle and encompassing key performance indicators (KPIs). This roadmap will serve as the foundation for a Marie Curie COFUND proposal aimed at addressing these challenges. The proposal, representing both Cambridge and the consortium of participating companies, is set to be submitted in February 2024.

Don't miss this chance to be part of innovative research and impactful collaboration! Join us on October 25th for an inspiring co-creation experience.

The event is in person event.
