Message from the organizing chair
I wanted to cordially invite all relevant colleagues to the 2019 Global Leadership Forum for Construction Engineering and Management Programs taking place at the University of Huddersfield between the 5th-7th of June 2019. Since 2011, eight successful meetings have been hosted around the globe by Purdue University (Lafayette, USA), Hong Kong Polytechnic University (Hong Kong), University of Alberta (Banff, Canada), Bauhaus University (Weimar, Germany), Tsinghua University (Beijing, China), University of Southern California (Los Angeles, USA) and Stellenbosch University (Stellenbosch, South Africa). In recognition of the importance of leadership, the 2019 event hosted by the University of Huddersfield, UK, will focus on various aspects of leadership including, but not limited to, collaborations between industry and academia, collaborative program developments across the globe, trends and benchmarking initiatives, research collaboration and collaborative working at the interface of research, innovation and development, and new talent development in industry as well as academia. As such, the forum is encouraging both senior leaders from industry and academia to attend, as well as developing academics that can benefit from being exposed to a truly unique network that includes current decision makers. Further updates and booking details are provided on the conference web site on a regular basis as the programme becomes finalized. The team at Huddersfield is looking forward to welcoming you all.
