Abstract

Continuity and Cooperation are the key words of concrete technological studies that have been carried out for over 40 years in a consortium between VTT (Technical Research Centre of Finland) and several public building owners.
The Finnish Transport Agency (formerly the Road Administration and Finnish Railroad Administration), the Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority and some city authorities have formed a consortium combining their funds and investing in concerted research. This is how they get more with the same money as they would if they acted alone. Research is focused on solving practical problems, developing processes and methods, preparing directions, setting requirements, etc.
