Research & Innovation

As a knowledge center in the field of Facility Management, Ifmec has its own research bureau and research agenda.

Ifmec develops

Ifmec has had its own research bureau and research agenda for more than 25 years. The resulting knowledge is not only used for the Ifmec Academy. By sharing knowledge with the entire field and beyond, Ifmec develops individuals, companies, sectors and disciplines. This ensures a continuous process of innovation, whereby the Young Professionals and Consultants of Ifmec can of course help to implement or further research these innovations.

How do we ensure this process? Ifmec does this by supporting organizations with their research issues, conducting their own research, organizing events and writing articles. Every year, a research agenda is drawn up around a current theme.
