Facilities and Environment

Target audience

All those working in universities with facilities and/or environmental issues, and also all other university administrators who are interested in these issues. The group is cooperating with a Nordic group NSCD (Nordic Sustainable Campus Development).

Focus areas

The critical topics are currently campus development, learning environment, working environment, and sustainability. Methods of teaching, studying, and working are continuously changing, as is technology. All this affects what is expected of facilities and campuses.

Activity goals for 2017‒2018

  • Face to face meetings 3–4 times per year to prepare upcoming conferences and other actual issues
  • Possibly smaller, workshop style, workgroup meetings around specific themes (we have discussed trying to create other kinds of possibilities for discussion and networking in addition to conferences)
  • 2017 Conference at the Linköping University, Sweden, in September with the theme, Facility Management and Benchmarking
  • 2018 Conference (theme and place not yet decided)
