The Role of Knowledge Transfer in Sustainability Research in the Built Environment Discipline.
In: 24th Annual ARCOM Conference, 1-3 September 2008, Cardiff, UK.
Many research institutions have conducted research work to find the best approach for achieving a sustainable environment. However, if this research is to be useful it has to be applied to the areas of life where it can make a difference. The role of knowledge transfer centres in exchanging information between the higher education institutions, industry and third party organisations has been investigated. Documentation and observations of the Sustainability in the Built Environment Forum’s meetings and discussions have been analysed. This analysis revealed that there is considerable interest in exchanging knowledge and sharing experiences among all the participants to achieve sustainability. However, there are many challenges facing this approach and greater efforts are needed to achieve best collaboration between academia and industry to attain the knowledge exchange in order to save our environment.
