Post Graduate Conference

Construction Industry Development Board Postgraduate Research Conference

Mandated by the cidb Act 38 of 2000, our board promotes and encourages a research agenda that develops, promotes, and defines local national development priorities in the construction industry. In order to fulfil our mandate to our best ability, the cidb has partnered with leading South African academic institutions to establish a bi-annual Post Graduate Research Conference. This forum allows for actionable debate and research to inform the academic construction community.
