Changes in land use, land development, and evolving climatic conditions significantly impact the risk of wear and tear and structural collapse. This encompasses not only the ground beneath and surrounding buildings but also infrastructure solutions. Leveraging new technologies, modern materials, and enhanced monitoring and controls, substantial preventive sures can be implemented helping to build a more resilient built environment.

About the organisers

The Swedish innovation agency, Vinnova and the Swedish research council for sustainable development jointly finance a total of 17 strategic innovation programmes, of which Smart Built Environment and InfraSweden are two of them.

Smart Built Environment is a plan that outlines how the built environment sector can contribute to Sweden’s journey to the global forefront of the new opportunities of digitalisation, so that we can achieve intelligent, sustainable cities, manage our resources more efficiently and reduce carbon emissions.
