Kick-off: Research Project ‘Building Brussels’
KICK-OFF MEETING | Friday June 9, 2017 | COOP, Brussels
The interdisciplinary research team ‘Building Brussels’ kindly invites you for its official kick-off meeting on friday June 9th 2017.
Building Brussels is a VUB-funded research project that investigates the role of SMEs in Brussels’ urban fabric, with a particular interest in the construction sector. In order to fundamentally grasp its specificity, the research will intertwine multiple disciplines: construction history, urban planning, architectural engineering and business history. Seen its societal relevance, we warmly invite you as a stakeholder to participate in the event and the debate.
