CHOBE’s first Policy Seminar was a great success!
The day, arranged around introductory talks and inter-active discussion sessions, provided Heads of Department or their representatives with the opportunity to:
- Discuss with colleagues across the Built Environment disciplines matters of strategic importance
- Meet with representatives from stakeholder groups
- Contribute to the formation of views for CHOBE to feed back to industry, government and other 3rd party stakeholders.
