Seminar on Digital construction


CECE, FIEC, EBC and Construction Products Europe co-host a “Digital Construction” seminar in Brussels as part of the 2018 EU Industry Days.

This initiative follows the recent European Commission event on this topic and aims to review and answer some of the questions posed by DG GROW.

For this digital transformation to be successful, all actors of the supply chain must be involved and coordinate their actions. The result would be a common approach towards a European digital construction strategy. This work can become an integral part of the Smart Construction industry platform to be launched within the Digitising Industry Initiative.
