European Research Network on Construction Innovation - ERNCI

ERNCI is a network of researchers with the common interest and engagement in empirical studies of construction innovation. The aim of the network is threefold: 1) to enhance the empirical and theoretical understanding of the processes through which innovation comes about in this industry, 2) to strengthen existing research collaboration as well as form new cooperation across different research groups, universities and countries, and 3) to communicate new findings and understandings within the academic community as well as with industry and public policy. A research theme of particular interest is the interactions and tensions between local and global contexts in terms of the effects on construction innovation processes - the importance and effects of local/global supply chains, regional/transnational policies and standards, local/global knowledge, competences, technological resources and user environments. An ongoing research project that unites the network is a comparative study of innovation processes across the seven European countries included in ERNCI. The project currently engages particularly in the study of health care construction projects and the use of BIM (Building Information Modelling). The network includes researchers from the following universities and countries:

  • Anglia Ruskin University (Cambridge, UK)
  • Cattolica University (Milan, Italy)
  • Chalmers University of Technology (Gothenburg, Sweden)
  • Copenhagen Business School - CBS (Copenhagen, Denmark)
  • Corvinus University of Budapest (Budapest, Hungary)
  • Lyon Business School (Lyon, France)
  • Normandy Business School (Le Havre, France)
  • Norwegian Business School - BI (Oslo, Norway)
  • Norwegian University of Science and Technology - NTNU (Trondheim, Norway)
  • Reading University (Reading, UK)
  • Uppsala University (Uppsala, Sweden)
  • Vestfold University College (Vestfold, Norway)
