A Study of the Challenges and Strategic Opportunities Facing the Dutch Construction Industry
The University of Groningen (UG) conducted a survey amongst members of Bouwend Nederland (Dutch Construction Industry). The topics were innovation and the alledged lack thereof in the construction sector. One of its findings is that it is time for the construction sector to renew its commitment to innovation. Theoretically, all the right ingredients for innovation are available. Construction companies are however clinging to budget cuts that helped them throughout the crisis years. (January 2018)
Killian McCarthy and Thijs Broekhuizen (UG) researched the construction sector for a year and conducted a survey amongst four thousand members of Bouwend Nederland. The research also details the difference between the various backgrounds of companies.
