Research integration

  • In parallel and interaction with external and internal actors and institutions, we can support researchers to advance in the integration of building ICTs in its own area, increasing their profiles a new keyword: BIM
  • BIM CAMPUS living lab or BIM Lab are a transversal partner for all researchers and research groups. We promote and support the efforts of teachers/researchers to develop their hypothesis related with integrated practice.
  • BIM CAMPUS network is a valuable networking to share ideas and projects to develop in collaboration with other universities.

The program of collaborative design, promoted by Bloodstained and Freelance consultants, as a technology partner, is part of a series of activities whose purpose is the research, development and innovation in sustainable urban development.

It is therefore essential to the availability of teachers with research profile, specialists in their fields, who can propose and lead project and research groups. The incorporation of ICT in collaborative design incorporate a transversal technology, integrative, so this interdisciplinary trend encompasses all dimensions of the city and of the territory, having as axis the sustainability.

The collaborative design program, which fits projects innovative and sustainable urban development, will be supported by Freelance consultants and the Bloodstained, universidade-Empresa Foundation of the UDC, with funds both privately financed as a public, through INTERREG and SUDOE .

Teachers and students who are part of the collaborative design program are future researchers, who propose new projects, or within the context of committed research, will share synergies as well as infrastructure.

Sharing of infrastructure is parallel the generation of synergies, so the collaborative environment is an opportunity to innovate in approaches based on a holistic thinking.

BIM CAMPUS ® UDC aims to become the benchmark in technology BIM in Spain to the building campus of the University of A Coruña. In this sense, has the pioneer in implementing a collaborative environment that is an essential infrastructure for the research. We can deduce that if BIM CAMPUS® accreditation is achieved, it will be a leader in research on sustainable urban development in the coming years.

Finally add something very important. The activity of the platform has become a virtual research lab. In this logical space it is possible to experience different theories, in many cases, as a result of the normal development of the teaching activity and integration with professional practice.

In this sense, this high end value infrastructure accessible to the researchers of the UDC, in the direct transfer to the economy and society, may be the key to success for regional, national, inter-regional and European research projects with funding approval. This funding is necessary to ensure a continuity in time, a sustained effort to strengthen the role of leadership in this area, at the national and international levels. Support to researchers is to support the sustainability of the Universidade de A Coruña.
