Knowledge Generation

Knowledge generation and new project proposals

The varous steps within CIBSE's knowledge generation process, and the associated stages within our QA procedures can be viewed on a workflow diagram that can be downloaded here for CIBSE titles. The workflow  for SLL titles is slightly different and is available here.

New proposals and suggestions for knowledge can be made to CIBSE for consideration in the CIBSE Knowledge generation process, with decisions ultimately  made by the CIBSE Knowledge Management Committee (KMC) supported by the Knowledge Delivery Sub-Committee (KDSC) and the Knowledge Programme Sub-Committee (KPSC).  Expressions of interest to join these sub-committees are always invited by emailing

Suggestions for new projects are very welcome however it is advisable to initially contact CIBSE Head of Knowledge  ( to discuss any duplication of, or overlap with, existing projects and fit with current CIBSE priorities. Proposals for new projects should be made on the official form, known as a TP1, which can be downloaded here. The completed form should also be sent to CIBSE Head of Knowledge (as above), who can also be contacted for guidance on the completion of the form.

In 2015, KMC agreed a number of areas as priorities for future CIBSE knowledge. These should be noted by those making new proposals to KMC and reflected in the TP1. These priorities can be viewed here

The KMC is interested in generating participation from all CIBSE interest areas. It is our ambition, with a view to limiting time and expense and for maximum participation, that a substantial number of meetings will be held either in person or on the phone or web from a remote location.
