Civil engineers around the world will soon have a comprehensive resource for knowledge sharing when the Knowledge Hub is launched later this month by the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE).
A collaborative project between ICE and the Major Projects Association (MPA), the Knowledge Hub will connect professionals with relevant high quality content and provide an opportunity for users to network and share knowledge with others in the field of civil engineering.
Launching on May 24th, the hub will comprise two elements: a database of knowledge and insights, to which users can contribute, and a major projects community that allows for direct interaction and communication with other professionals. On a global scale, professionals will be able to connect with one another and share best practice ideas and discussions.
The ICE comments that there are many sources of knowledge and information about major projects online, of varying quality. In many cases, the institution states, information is replicated on the same subject matter but with different perspectives, which can make it difficult to find a single, high-quality source of knowledge.
Continuing, the institution adds that the idea behind the creation of the hub is to create a connected knowledge network that reduces duplication and therefore has a greater impact on the industry, also enabling users to share relevant content.
The official website states that the hub “seeks to capture and share learning, good practice and innovation on major projects, and connect a network of experts across the industry”.
