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: 14 industrial PhD’s and postdocs will form this new network beginning in late 2020. All research 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.
From 2021: Through the Grand Solution program, companies and research institutions join forces to solve the construction sectors challenges with the transition to a Circular Resource Economy.
All participants will be part of a network curated by BLOXHUB focusing on knowledge-sharing, inspiration, and networking.
The Grand Solution Network is expected to launch in January 2021.
BLOXHUB Summer School
Through a series of Summer School Modules created together with a number of universities, we share and strengthen knowledge with scientists and practitioners within sustainable urbanization.
The Summer School Modules go into depth with topics that range from resiliency to mediation.
Our science events are tailored to increase knowledge sharing between research and practice.
Through Science Talks, we present new and inspiring research on sustainable urban development.
Through Science Conferences and Grand Lectures, we provide knowledge, engagement and dialogue between researchers and practitioners.
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.
