Knowledge, Science and Data are crucial when it comes to making the best possible solutions for our cities. Therefore, we bridge science and practice. By providing a third space for researchers and professionals, we ensure and explore common ground through talks, conferences and networking.
The science networks develop new knowledge and share it within the network and with the BLOXHUB community. This helps us ensure an important sharing of knowledge between research and practice:
Smart City Research
2017 – 2020: This network consists of nine industrial PhD’s & postdocs and their advising companies and universities. All of them are working within the Smart buildings & Smart cities agenda.
They share learnings with each other and with the BLOXHUB community to spread out important knowledge to the industry.
Circular Built Environment
2020 – 2023: 15 industrial PhD’s/postdocs and 2 Grand Solutions Projects will form this network beginning in late 2020. All projects will focus on a shift from a conventional Construction Industry to a Circular Resource Economy.
They will share learnings with each other and with the BLOXHUB community to spread out important knowledge to the industry.
2020: The vision of the Danish network for Architecture and Urbanism Research (DARE) is to bring together Danish educational and research institutions within architecture, urbanism and landscape planning with a focus on promoting sustainable development and establishing a network where research-related activities are discussed, challenged and evaluated across the institutions.
Science Forum is co-organizer of several interdisciplinary academic courses, summer schools and the like, which aim to support students’ and professionals’ knowledge and competencies within the built environment, so that they can contribute to the green transition. Together with national Higher-educational institutions and key players within the built environment, the participants learn how implement sustainable conversion thus bridging science and practice.
21 – 25 March – kick-off 14 March
VINTERAKADEMI is an interdisciplinary offer for students and recent graduates from master´s and professional bachelor programs. As a participant, you get a week’s academy with casework, company visits, and teaching about sustainability in construction and urban planning.
The theme of this year’s academy is `Fortiden som greb i nutidens transformation til fremtiden´.
Science Forum Advisory Board
Our work with bridging science and practice is quality assured by a carefully selected advisory board. They represent a wide range of key players from the worlds of business and research with a broad strategic insight into sustainable urban development and how to ensure collaboration across research, innovation and practice.
