Procurement for sustainable innovation in the Built Environment

Project: Research


This project aims to establish a strong trans-disciplinary platform for research and innovation related to procurement in construction, facilities management and urban development. Procurement is a fundamental driving force for innovation in the built environment but may also be an obstacle to change. Today, it is a problem that traditional price-focused procurement strategies are too often used when new goals for economic, ecological and social sustainability call for more flexible and innovation-oriented approaches.
