Early July 2017, the European Commission brought together industry leaders, finance professionals, policy makers, SMEs and start-ups to discuss how the construction’s value chain could meet its ever-evolving challenges.


The 2017 Construction Conference: Let's build changes! assessed the main trends, strategies and roles of major actors, including the public sector.


Four break-out sessions were organised to tackle these challenges thematically:

  •  Using construction to reshape our cities
  • Sustainability - resource efficiency and beyond
  • Innovation and digitalisation and their impacts on business models
  • Skills – a capable workforce to deliver transformational change
