Abstract

The construction sector is characterised by delivery of one-of-a-kind product and service delivery through competence sharing between different organisations (some of which may be unknown to others). ICT usage in the sector is limited and lags far behind other manufacturing sectors. The ROADCON project offered a vision for ICT in construction in addition to a set of roadmaps across 12 thematic areas. It did not however provide a means (in terms of research plans) for realisation of the vision. This paper presents the Strat-CON project which was initiated to align the ROADCON roadmaps with the main thematic areas addressed by the European Construction Technology Platform's focus area on processes and ICT. Strat-CON furthermore through stakeholder interaction, identifies and develops a set of strategic actions for realising the vision of ICT in construction. These will be published and shared with various national and European funding programmes to support ICT R&D in construction.
