CECE event being held in Brussels

First publishedon www.WorldHighways.com

A Digital Construction seminar is being held in Brussels, Belgium on 22nd February 2018. The event is being co-hosted by the European construction equipment manufacturing association, CECE. The construction Industry value chain event forms part of the programme for 2018 of EU Industry Days.

This will be the first event of its kind and the workshop has been endorsed by the European Commission as an official event of the 2018 EU Industry Days.

The event is intended to boost knowledge in key areas. Digital changes will be disruptive for a sector of 3 million companies, mainly small to medium enterprises (SMEs), which employ more than 18 million people. Low digitalisation, low productivity, labour and skills shortage are well-documented facts. Through the circular economy and climate change commitments, the construction sector must embrace digital processes in order to do more with less.

From BIM in the design phase to drones for geological surveying, from sensors in technology to big data, from autonomous driving of construction equipment to digital CE Marking of products, technological solutions are very varied.

For this digital transformation to be successful, all actors of the supply chain must be involved and coordinate their actions. The result would be a common approach towards a European digital construction strategy. This work can become an integral part of the Smart Construction industry platform to be launched within the Digitising Industry Initiative.

The event is open and attendance is free. Please register by sending an email to info@cece.eu.
