School of Science and Engineering scientists collaborated on EU project


Dr. Jónas Þór Snæbjörnsson, professor, and Dr. Þórður Víkingur Friðgeirsson, assistant professor, both at RU's School of Science and Engineering, are participants in an ERASMUS+ project that focuses on the development of six manuals for construction management.

The name of the project is CLOEMC (Common Learning Outcome for European Managers in Construction) and is the fourth in a series of similar projects that have been funded by the Leonardo and Erasmus + programmes of the EU. 

Along with Reykjavik University the participants came from the Technische Universität Darmstadt in Germany, the Chartered Institute of Building in the UK, the Association of European Building Surveyors and Construction Experts from Belgium and the UK, contractor AWBUD S.A. from Poland, and the Polish Association of Building Managers. The project was led by the Warsaw University of Technology in Poland.

The manuals will be available as e-books on the project´s website:
