Abstract:

The Subcommittee on Construction and Building of the President's National Science and Technology Council and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers sponsored the Construction Industry Collaborations Workshop in April 1996 as a critical first step in identifying ways to improve collaborative mechanisms between the public and private sectors. The Workshop was attended by over 120 key construction industry, government, and academic research managers who spent one and a half days developing strategies to improve and foster new partnerships among industry, academia, and the Federal government. This report provides a summary and the results of the Workshop, and is intended to encourage involvement of organizations not in attendance as well as to maintain the involvement of Workshop participants in furthering collaborative efforts.
