New languages available to support construction SMEs
Language barriers are often mentioned as a challenge in the construction sector. This relates both, to the actual work as people from several countries might be working on one construction site, as well as to EU level support measures as information often is only available in English.
Start your path to digitalisation
Benefit from short, online and free training sessions which will only be available until April 2023! You can easily sign up for the subjects of your matter and the dates of your preference by checking our updated training calendar. Our trainings cover topics from strategy building, culture and process integration as well as how digital technologies such as BIM or 3D printing can support construction SMEs in design, engineering, construction, renovation, operation and maintenance.
