The new research forum will
bring the research and resources of the global CIB network to all post-doctoral
and PhD students at LSBU who have a strong interest in research and innovation
in the built and natural environment. Membership allows access to leading-edge
building research world-wide and to CIB's calendar of international events and
conferences. The forum will give research students new opportunities to
network, meet and discuss ideas relating to their research subjects.
CIB is an international
research council providing a global community of international exchange and
cooperation in research and innovation in building and construction.
Joseph Levodo, President of LSBU’s
CIB Student Chapter, commented: "The establishment of this new forum will
bring many benefits to research students at LSBU. It will enable students to network
widely with other researchers in our field. It also gives us access to international
conferences and also one of the most comprehensive databases of research
materials in architecture, building and construction. We will also be able to
draw on the thinking from some of the eminent researchers and writers in our
field, boosting the impact and significance of our own research."
