The BIMBreitband innovation project aims to significantly accelerate broadband expansion in Germany through the use of digital models and to improve the supply of high-speed internet. Concepts are being developed for the digital support of approval procedures as well as upstream and downstream approval and coordination processes in the context of broadband expansion using Building Information Modeling (BIM). A particular focus is on the involvement of all stakeholders and the integration of digital three-dimensional as-built and planning models to enable transparent communication and decision-making.
Germany's largest hybrid event for Building Information Modeling and digital construction is coming to NRW in 2023. On October 12, the BIM Conference WEST will take place at the ZESS Research Center of the Ruhr University Bochum. This will be hybridly linked with the BIM Capital Congress at the Brandenburg Gate and will focus entirely on "BIM made in NRW".
From September 6 to 8, 2023, the Forum Bauinformatik will take place at the Research Center ZESS of the Ruhr-University Bochum. Over three days, young scientists will present and discuss their research.
The Forum Bauinformatik has been held annually since 1989 and covers all areas of construction informatics.
Last week, the Computing in Engineering (IIB) team was represented at the Bau Exposition 2023 in Munich by Patrick Herbers and Sven Zentgraf, supported by Ruby the robotic dog. Together with the RKW Competence Centre, Ruby presented the " Auf IT Gebaut 2023" (Built on IT 2023) award to aspiring researchers.
We are also very proud that VSK Software GmbH, a spin-off from our department, was awarded a special prize in the start-up category. Congratulations to Marcel Stepien and André Vonthroné for this special recognition.
