Planen-bauen 4.0 was founded in Feb. 2015 by 14 major professional association of the construction industry in Germany to coordinate and accelerate the implementation of BIM. It is a national platform and centre of excellence coordinating BIM research, standardisation and market implementation. Via the members of its share holders planen-bauen 4.0 has also strong support by and access to experts of all kind within the industry. In 2015 planen-bauen 4.0 developed in a joint effort with private and public clients as well as BIM experts from industry and academia a strategic road map for the German Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure to mandate BIM on all its infrastructure and infrastructure related building projects until 2020. A core concept in this strategy is the use and further development of open data standards as well as transparent definition of data requirement within project procurement processes. The implementation of BIM within in road authorities and public clients on federal and state level will be the main focus of activity within the next years. This also includes setup of advanced education programs for professionals and the development of supporting guidelines and tools. Planen-bauen 4.0 personnel is involved in various national and international standardisation committees and gained strong practical experience in BIM consulting and research on international infrastructure projects.

Agenda:

INSPIRE Conference 2018, Antwerp, Belgium

Sept. 18, 2018 - Sept. 21, 2018

The 2018 edition of the INSPIRE conference will take place in Antwerp, Belgium, 18-21 September. The motto of this years’ event is INSPIRE users: Make it work together!  

The European INSPIRE Directive leads to a digital highway for sharing information on Europe’s environment. Member states are rapidly extending this network to reach all levels of government and application areas beyond the environment. Now that we have this essential European facility in place, we can exploit it to the full to support the digital transformation of European society. 

The call for submissions is organised in 3 strands

INSPIRE the Users: In this strand special attention goes to inspiring the usage and users of INSPIRE. Both public and private parties are invited to share their experiences with creating applications that benefit from INSPIRE.

Doing it Together: This strand is dedicated to 'cooperation'. We are looking for examples where the cooperation between public and/or private sector organisations and programmes has been successfully developed to support the implementation of INSPIRE.

Making it work: The strand adressess a more technical approach to ‘make it work’. We are calling for submissions where implementation issues have been identified and where the source of the problems has been - or needs to be - addressed (e.g. Simplifications encoding, Automatisations, quality assessment, etc.).
