Knowledge Priorities

CIBSE's vision is to create better-performing buildings for society and the environment. To that end, we are constantly working to create world-class guidance and Knowledge outputs, aiming to support our community of built environment professionals in their pursuit of excellence. 
CIBSE also partners with universitites on various academic research projects, supporting doctoral and post-doctoral theses and Knowledge Transfer Partnerships. We aim to promote the development of innovative solutions, and are always driving to improve the performance, safety, health and sustainability of the built environment.
