Overview

Background & Policy context

This network was launched in 1998 as a follow up and enlargement of the Civil Engineering Plan of the French state, which ended in 1998.

Strategic Objectives

The main objective is to co-ordinate research in urban civil engineering. It encompasses all public and private civil constructions for land, sea and air transport, bridges, underground constructions (tunnels), canalisation, pipes, buildings, environmentally-friendly constructions and materials, industrial constructions, etc.

The network also focuses on engineering of buildings, roads, infrastructure in urban environments, and integration of civil engineering into the urban environment to satisfy the population.

Actions are closely co-ordinated with European research e.g. in FP5.

Programme organisation

The main themes studied are the following:

- Materials and constructive methods
- Risks linked to soils and hydrology
- Follow-up, diagnosis and maintenance of constructions
- Construction and environment: reduction of waste and polluting materials
- Reduction of noise and vibration
- Follow-up, diagnosis and maintenance of urban networks
- Conception and maintenance of roads and urban equipment
- Software development.
