W&T9: Science and Technology of Constructions and the Built Environment

The scope of Expertpanel W&T9 is building in the broadest sense of the term, that is the creation of the human environment; all aspects of the built environment and human interaction with it, every phase of its production process from design to realization and subsequent transformation, and all scale levels from building material and building element to the landscape, are considered to be relevant. The finality of this research is generating fundamental and innovative knowledge with long-term practical applications.
