CIBSE Knowledge Generation Panel

Purpose of Panel:

The Knowledge Generation Panel is responsible for identifying the future knowledge requirements of the Institution and for recommending new knowledge development projects, which may include updating current guidance, to the committee. The Panel should be drawn from a wide cross section of the membership in terms of discipline, location and diversity of those involved.

The activities of the Knowledge Generation Panel support the functions of the Knowledge Management Committee.

Terms of Reference

  1. To review the core content of CIBSE Knowledge and to develop a prioritised timetable and programme for review and update of that content.
  2. To consider the requirements for new CIBSE Knowledge, taking into account both the objective need for the information and the likely market and demand for that information.
  3. ​To identify and recommend priorities for projects to support production of new content for the Knowledge Portal, in liaison with the Technology Committee, the Education, Training & Membership Committee and the Groups and Divisions of the Institution.
  4. ​To recommend proposals for the support of projects through the CIBSE Research Fund and the Richard Tully Fund to the Knowledge Management Committee.
