Knowledge Generation Panel Member

23 Jan 24

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 CIBSE 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.

Committee Constitution

Committee members should represent a range of age, gender, background, experience and expertise, and include participation from different sectors and specialisms involved in the performance of buildings throughout their whole lifecycle.

  • The Knowledge Generation Panel comprises around 40 or so members, aiming to cover all areas of building services engineering.  
  • Members are appointed for a three year period. At the end of this period, they may be reappointed for a further three year period, however, a balance between retaining expertise and bringing in fresh ideas is sought. 
  • The Board is responsible for appointing members of the panel but may delegate this responsibility to the Knowledge Management Committee.
  • The Chair of the panel is normally appointed by the Knowledge Management Committee.
