Researcher Exchanges




One of CBERD’s cornerstone achievements has been through its researcher exchange for bilateral transfer of scientific approaches and methods. To date, thirty-nine researcher exchange visits have occurred, resulting in international experience, access to new ideas, training on scientific approach and test beds, technical assistance in capacity building, and even the development of new joint tools and  technologies. These exchanges have strengthened the relationship between CBERD partners, in support of the expansion of international networks of excellence in buildings research and development.

A new BHAVAN fellowship program on buildings energy efficiency has also been instituted in India, through which exemplary Indian researchers are currently placed at CBERD-U.S. partner institutions.
