This report presents 38 prospectuses developed by industry experts from more than 25 countries as part of an international collaborative agenda for the construction industry to advance innovation in support of sustainable development. The prospectuses, or proposed collaborative projects, identify challenges facing the engineering and construction industry and the problems associated with implementing innovative technologies. The prospectuses also recommend solutions to these challenges; detail the benefits of these solutions; identify proposed collaborative partners; and estimate the cost and schedule associated with implementing these projects.
