Knowledge Generation

The steps within CIBSE's knowledge generation process, and the associated stages within our QA procedures can be viewed on a workflow diagram for CIBSE titles.

The process for SLL titles is slightly different and can be viewed on the SLL workflow diagram.

Propose a project

New proposals and suggestions for knowledge can be made to CIBSE for consideration in the CIBSE knowledge generation process. Decisions on proposals are ultimately made by the CIBSE Knowledge Management Committee, with support from the Knowledge Generation Panel.

Proposals for new projects should be made on the official Knowledge Proposal Form, known as TP/1. The priorities for future CIBSE knowledge should be considered by those making new proposals to KMC and, ideally, reflected in the TP/1. The completed form should be sent to

Proposals for new research projects should be made on the official Research Funding Approval Request Form, known as RP/1. The process is explained on the research support page.

CIBSE also welcomes suggestions for improving the content and delivery of the guidance and information provided by CIBSE to its members and to other interested parties. Ideas can be submitted via online form
