The principal aim of Innovation & Research Focus (IRF) is to promote the application of innovation and research in building and civil engineering.
Supported by many organisations in the British construction industry, including ICE, Innovation & Research Focus produces brief articles on current research or innovations for practising engineers, architects, surveyors and their clients with, the objective of disseminating research news as widely as possible.
IRF is an unrestricted newsletter containing factual records or case studies of building or civil engineering research projects. Articles may be reproduced, provided the source is acknowledged.
Innovation & Research Focus is available online and is circulated in printed form to all Chartered Civil Engineers - overseas as well as in the UK - and to all sponsors for their own distribution. Circulation is more than 45000.
Its sponsors wish to promote the benefits of innovation and research, improve contacts between industry and researchers, encourage investment by industry innovation and in research, the use of innovation and research in practice, and facilitate collaboration between all the parties involved.
