The 19th Conference on Project Development took place on September 20. Each year, a different institution hosts this event. This time, guests were greeted by the initiators of these conferences – BZB Krefeld, an educational centre for the construction industry headquartered in Düsseldorf. Representatives of the Educational Research Institute (IBE) have already participated in this event in the past.The Conference on Project Development is a cycle of meetings held semi-annually for the past 10 years. Frank Bertelmann-Angenendt provided the impetus for these meetings, and has chaired the Conference since 2008. Since that time, the group of participants has steadily grown, and for the past year has also included IBE, represented by Agata Poczmańska, manager of the Institute’s Project Development Team.
