Start of Research Network „AdvanceAEC“

Five DFG-funded research networksn aim to exploit synergies and expand the promotion of young researchers. "Research Network for Advancing Architecture, Engineering and Construction" (AdvanceAEC) brings together international researchers who strive to advance architecture, engineering and construction through digital technologies and an interdisciplinary approach. It aims to address the diverse environmental, economic and socio-cultural challenges facing the construction world. And, of course, the CRC/Transregio 280 participates!

The network provides a platform to exchange expertise, promote and build an international research community in the fields of architecture, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, computer science, robotics and social sciences.

The focus is on the following topics:

  • Architecture, engineering and construction
  • Interdisciplinary research
  • Co-design and digital technologies
  • Resource-efficient and sustainable construction
  • Productivity and automation

The aim of the network is to promote an intensive exchange both at the level of the participating research networks and at the individual level of the researchers. The platform for this is the joint website www.advanceaec.net.

Cooperation at the association level is supported by joint activities such as colloquia, symposia and other events. A central role for networking is played by the member database, which offers an opportunity for direct exchange and scientific cooperation. Researchers working in the fields of AdvanceAEC are invited to join the network, participate in its development and take advantage of the associated activities. Free registration is possible on the website: LINK to Registration

The launch event of the AdvanceAEC research network took place online on 16 November from 6 to 9 pm for all registered members. The research networks are presented by the respective speakers. As guest of honour, Prof. Dr. Philippe Block from ETH Zurich, speaker of the National Centre of Competence in Research NCCR dfab, will lead the subsequent discussion.

Network partners and professional contacts can be found on the AEC website. For further information see also: Link
